SEVIERVILLE (WATE) - Authorities in Sevierville were looking for the man who robbed a local business on Tuesday.

The woman said the man then forced her back inside and demanded money. He then left with an undisclosed amount of money.

Officials described the suspect as a black man with a medium build and no facial hair, who appeared to be in his late 20s or early 30s, wearing jeans and a black jacket.

The incident is still under investigation.
