CHICO, Calif. - A man walked into A&M Vapes on Mangrove Avenue just after 7 pm. on Thursday. 

Investigators say he showed the store owner a handgun and demanded money. After getting cash from the till, the robber, described as a white man wearing dark clothing, took off on foot.

Fortunately, no one was hurt.

Investigators do not know if there is any connection between Thursday night's robbery and the one caught on surveillance video on New Year's Eve at East Avenue Liquor.
