A man is accused of threatening a woman and a cashier at Kings Deli in Melrose.
Police say the incident happened just after 1:30 p.m. Friday on Boston Road.

The man allegedly walked up to the counter with a gun in his hand. He then turned around and pointed a gun at a 36-year-old woman, according to police.

The man then aimed the weapon at a man behind the counter before leaning further over the counter while continuing to wave his gun.

The suspect apparently got into an argument with the 30-year-old cashier and then left the store.

He then came back with the gun and started making threats.
Officials say the man is between 44 and 55 years old, about 200 pounds and was last seen wearing a multi-colored shirt.

No injuries were reported.

The man fled down Boston Road.

Police say anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
