A man with a knife robbed a woman of her change at a Mechanicsburg laundromat Monday night, police said.

The woman told officers she was at the Scottee Coin Laundry in the 600 block of E. Simpson Street when the man demanded money just before 9 p.m., according to borough police.

She said she told the man she had no money, but he saw her change purse on a table and began walking away with it, police said.

When she told him to return the money, he opened his jacket and displayed the handle of a knife and then left the area in a large white vehicle, police said.

Surveillance cameras captured the suspect during the robbery.

Anyone who can identify him is asked to call Mechanicsburg police at 717-691-3300 or leave an anonymous tip by calling 717-691-3309.
