Police said a store worker pulled a gun on a robber Friday.

The Madison Police Department said a man entered Megan’s Custom Framing on East Washington Avenue at 5:32 p.m. and demanded cash.

The clerk gave the robber some money, but the robber demanded more bills. The clerk then pulled a handgun out, pointed it at the robber and told him to get out.

Police said the man fled.

The robber was described as black, about 25 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighed between 150 to 170, according to the report. He had short hair and wore a zip-up dark navy coat, blue and white checkered boxer shorts under low-riding pants.
