A man selling produce at a Westminster roadside stand was robbed at gunpoint Saturday afternoon, according to Carroll County Sheriff's Deputies.

The employee with Kern's Produce had been selling produce from the back of his pick-up truck and was seated in the cab taking a break between customers when a man with a gun walked up to the passenger side of the vehicle parked in the 400 block of E. Main Street, deputies said.

The man pressed a dark colored handgun against the man's neck while demanding money at about 1:20 p.m., deputies said.

The gunman was described as a six-foot tall white man with short dark hair and a scar on his right cheek, deputies said. He was wearing sunglasses, a dark colored t-shirt and sweat pants. After the incident, witnesses reported a dark colored, late model Ford Econoline van leaving the area quickly.

The man was last seen leaving the scene on foot toward Fair Avenue with an undisclosed amount of cash. No one was injured.

Anyone with information is asked to call Cpl. Brian Dayton at 410-386-2900.
