CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati Police are looking for a gunman who robbed the Rock Bottom Brewery at Fountain Square while it was full of customers yesterday.

According to Cincinnati Police, around 10:30 p.m. an individual gained access into the restaurant through a secure entrance that is typically used by employees.

The suspect concealed his identity and went directly into an office in the basement where he robbed the manager.

Customers and most of the staff did not realize what was happening in the office. 

"This is a situation where the individual had a plan and he knew what he was about to do and where to rob the place," Lt. Brent Isaac said.

Jelisa Hummons, an employee of Rock Bottom Brewery, says someone buzzed the suspect in and believes it was either an inside job or a former employee. 

The gunman left the way he came in and ran down into an ally across 6th Street. No one was injured during the robbery.

Police are not saying how much money was taken from the establishment.

Police are investigating the situation and are hoping surveillance video will help bring the suspect to justice.
