Police are seeking the public's help as they work to identify a suspect in an armed robbery at Family Dollar, 5449 North Bend Rd.
A man walked into the store and pointed what was described as a long silver handgun at one of the employees just after 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, police said in a prepared statement.
While holding the employee at gunpoint, the suspect demanded a second employee remove the money from the safe and cash register. Two employees inside were not hurt.
The suspect left, heading northbound on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.
A Green Township police K-9 unit responded and unsuccessfully attempted to follow the suspect's trail.
The man is described as black, about 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds with a full, groomed beard.
He wore a black jacket over a purple hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans, and black and white tennis shoes.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers: 513-352-3040.
