Police investigate robbery at Penacook restaurant

A man armed with a handgun robbed a Penacook restaurant last night, according to the police.

The man, who was masked, entered Asian Taste Restaurant at 15 Village St. at about 9:28 p.m., displayed a handgun and demanded money, the police said. He took an undisclosed amount of cash before leaving.

The robber was described as being about 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall with a medium build, the police said. He was wearing all black clothing, including a black mask that covered his face, and white gloves.

Last night, a police dog helped search the surrounding area, the police said. The incident is still under investigation.
