State police in Greensburg are investigating an unusual armed robbery at a Westmoreland County gas station.

Trooper Stephen Limani said a man robbed the Buy 'n Fly in Herminie on Monday afternoon after wrapping himself in fabric to conceal his identity.

"We're told he almost had the appearance of a mummy," Limani told Channel 4 Action News' Jennifer Miele.

Limani also said the man used a hatchet to threaten the clerk.

The robber got away with undisclosed amount of cash. There were no injuries, police said.

Investigators are viewing surveillance video of the robber.

So far, police have not announced any arrests.
