By , Columbian Assistant Metro Editor

An armed man robbed a Vancouver Panda Express on Monday night, making off with an undisclosed amount of money, according to the Vancouver Police Department.

Police were called shortly after 8 p.m. for a reported robbery at the restaurant, 2510 Columbia House Blvd., emergency dispatch records show.

The suspect ordered food and then robbed the employee at gunpoint before running away, police department spokeswoman Kim Kapp said in an email. Police set up containment and used a police K-9 to track the suspect but were unable to find him, she said.
