AMARILLO -- Amarillo Police were called out Thursday evening to a robbery at Lidia’s Fashion and Design at 2212 Amarillo Blvd. East. 

The victim told police that a man came into the store and picked up 8-10 Valentine’s Day themed gift baskets from a table display. He started to leave. When the victim approached, he pulled up his shirt and exposed a handgun that was in his waistband. He told her to step back or he would shoot her. The man then left the store, running east. 

Other witnesses in the store tried to follow the man, and recovered some of the baskets he dropped as he ran, but lost sight of him. 

There were no injuries and no arrests in this incident.
