Man robs Pa. Knights of Columbus on Columbus Day

Police in southwestern Pennsylvania are looking for a man accused of robbing patrons at a Knights of Columbus lodge on Columbus Day.

State police near Uniontown say the man claimed to have a gun but never showed one _ instead keeping his hand inside his coat _ as he ordered patrons to lie on the floor as he entered the club at about 10 p.m. Monday. The club is about 35 miles south of Pittsburgh.

Police say the man gave the club's bartender a pillowcase and ordered her to fill it with money before he grabbed the sack and ran away.

Police haven't said how much money was taken.
