A Portland restaurant was robbed at knifepoint on Saturday night.

The suspect entered Mi Sen Noodle Bar, a downtown restaurant on Congress Street, about 9:51 p.m. and threatened a clerk with a knife, according to the Portland Police Department.

In a Facebook post, Mi Sen Noodle Bar said the suspect asked to use the bathroom, and afterward emerged with a knife and demanded money.

“He stole the cash register by cutting out the wires and ran out with the entire drawer. All of the staff are in shock, but luckily no one was physically injured,” the post said.

Police did not indicate how much money was stolen.
