CHICO, Calif. - Chico Police are now searching for a man who robbed yogurt shop Jon & Bon's, threatening employees at gunpoint.

This happened just after 9:30 p.m. Sunday night at the store on Mangrove Avenue.

Police on scene told Action News Now that they believe the robber is a man, but he was wearing a ski mask, so they have very little information about his identity at this time.

The business does have security cameras that likely captured the robbery.

None of the employees were harmed.
