November 16, 2012 |  5:43 pm

Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who reportedly flashed a handgun while robbing a Starbucks Nov. 9 in the 300 block of Pass Avenue.

The man -- who police described as black, 5 feet 10 with an athletic build and wearing a Raiders jacket -- entered the store at 9 p.m. and asked for a glass of water.

He flashed a handgun in his waistband, led an employee to the back of the store and demanded money from the safe.

He fled on foot with $2,500, said Burbank police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.

No injuries were reported, police said.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Burbank police at (818) 238-3000.
