SCRANTON, Pa. -- Scranton police are still looking for the man who robbed Gertrude Hawk Chocolates in the city's south side Saturday.

It happened shortly after 7 p.m. at the store on South Washington Avenue. Police say the robber got away with some cash.

It's not clear whether the robber was armed, but police say no one inside the chocolate shop was hurt.

Officers took a man matching the robber's description into custody a short time later. However, on Sunday, investigators said that man was released after surveillance video revealed he was not the robber.
