Brunswick police are searching for a man who robbed the GameStop at Merrymeeting Plaza at 1 a.m., following the highly anticipated midnight release of a new video game Friday.

Police say a man displayed what appeared to be a black semi-automatic handgun and ran off with an undisclosed amount of cash. Nobody was injured.

The man was described as white man, 6 feet tall, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark leather jacket, faded blue jeans and dark athletic shoes.

The store had been open for the midnight release of a new fantasy video game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which caused many gamers to line up in advance of the release to buy copies as soon as it went on sale.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Brunswick police tip line at 725-6620, ext. 187.
