AMELIA, OH (FOX19) - A robber held a local cash advance store, but at least he was sorry about it.

Police responded to the Advance America/Cash Advance store on W. Ohio Pike in Amelia on Tuesday around 5:30 p.m. Deputies say a male entered the store dressed in black clothing, pushed one employee to the ground and demanded cash from the other employee. She took him to the register and gave him the cash.

The suspect then apologized to the employees, saying he needed the money, and feld on foot, running behind Art's Rental on Bach Buxton Road.

Discarded clothing matching the description given was found in the wooded area behind the Taco Bell on State Route 125.  One of the employees was the same one who was robbed at this same location on 12-19-09, but it is unknown at this time if the same perpetrator was involved.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 20's, 5'10 to 5'11 tall, 160 to 185 lbs.,  short shaved medium to dark brown hair, clean shaven.
