BEACHWOOD, OH (WOIO) -

The Beachwood Police Department is investigating another armed robbery.

The latest happened Thursday morning around 9:32 a.m. 

Police say the suspect approached an employee of a store located at Beachwood Place Mall as they were preparing to open for business, and demanded and received several items of store merchandise.

The suspect was armed with a silver handgun and fled the scene before police got there.

Beachwood Police did make an arrest in an armed robbery that took place in the mall parking lot. That one occurred on December 23, 2013.  The suspect is set to go to trial this month.

Police say a woman was getting into her car in the parking lot when a man opened the passenger side door, pointed a gun at her and demanded her purse and valuables.

The man then fled in a silver-colored vehicle and used her credit cards within minutes.

ATM surveillance video led to that arrest.

Beachwood Police urge anyone with information on the latest robbery call the department at 216-464-1234.
