It was not clear if he had a weapon.

Roane County Sheriff's Department said the robbery happened about 7 p.m.

Channel 13 News said a woman who witnessed the incident won't forget the experience. She was at a a nearby cash register checking-out.

Police are saying they have a suspect, a man visiting the area from New Jersey.

They say the suspect stopped at a nearby gas station after he left WalMart.

Police are saying they expect to make an arrest.

The Wal-Mart robbery followed an incident last week where a duo reportedly attempted a robbery at a farm implement store on US 119 in Roane County.

After a police chase that ended in Kanawha County, they were arrested.
