Pleasure World, an adult toy store on Veterans Parkway, was robbed late Tuesday.
A Columbus detective was on Veterans Parkway at River Road around 11:30 p.m. when a call about an armed robbery in progress came in.
When the officer arrived at the business at 3401 Veterans Parkway, two employees told him the suspect had just left.
They said a man with a silver pistol entered the business just minutes before. After taking an undisclosed amount of money, the man fled. There were no injuries.
A description of the gunman was broadcast on police radio, but officers were unable to find him.
He is described as white with a slender build, standing between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall. He wore an army green jacket, blue jeans and a black ski mask.
Police are investigating.
