COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Police confirmed officers are on scene of a reported robbery and car theft at Dollar General on Pippin Road.

Police told dispatchers a female suspect held up the store and then stole a green Ford Escape from a victim who was inside the business.

A weapon was not seen, only implied, a dispatcher said.

No one was hurt.

The suspect was described as in her mid-20s and wearing a burgundy jacket.

About an hour later, Cincinnati police took her into custody off Lantana Avenue in College Hill, said Sgt. Donna Hurst, Cincinnati police spokeswoman.
