COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man who robbed an adult bookstore early Thursday morning.

The store, Romantix, is located at the intersection of B Street and LaShelle Way, just north of Fort Carson.

Deputies from the Sheriff's Office said the suspect robbed the store at gunpoint at about 12:30 a.m.  The female clerk later said that he took an unknown amount of cash and ran north.  The man escaped despite a search by deputies and a K9 unit.

The Sheriff's Office hopes to get more details about the holdup from a customer in the store at the time, and from the store's surveillance camera.

If you have any information related to this case, you are asked to call the sheriff's office at 719-390-5555.
