Police say this man robbed a Cumberland Farms on Hanover Street in Manchester on Friday afternoon. 

An employee told police that around 3 p.m. a man walked to the refrigerated sandwich stand and began stuffing sandwiches into his jacket. He took about eight sandwiches from the 275 Hanover St. store, according to a news release.

When the man headed for the door, the employee stood in front of him and asked if he was going to pay for the sandwiches, the release said. 

"The man acted as though he didn’t know what he was talking about. An argument ensued and the suspect ultimately pulled out a knife, flipped it open, and held it at waist level,” the news release reads. “The employee told police the suspect then made threats and fearing for his safety, the employee moved out of his way.”

The man was last seen riding a bicycle south on Beech Street.
