A Plaza Meat Market store employee was held up at gunpoint Monday night.
At 9:52 Monday night, the employee told police he was at the store's front counter when a man entered the store and brandished a revolver.
The suspect told the employee to look down as he pointed the revolver at him, according to a police report.
The suspect then went behind the counter and stole money and five packs of cigarettes before exiting the store - located at 207 Boylston St., according to the report.
The suspect got into a white 2-door vehicle, which then fled down Boylston Street toward Amory Street.
Officers searched for a five-foot eight-inch male in his mid 20s wearing a puffy red jacket, the report said.
