Posted: Updated:
AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

Akron Police are looking for the man who robbed a Family Dollar Store in broad daylight Wednesday afternoon.

It happened shortly after 3 p.m. at the store on East Tallmadge Avenue.

Employees reported the suspect entered the store and approached the checkout counter with one hand in his pocket, as if he had a gun.  The suspect told the clerk, "don't make this hard, give me the money and you won't get shot."  The clerk handed the suspect an unreported amount of money and the suspect fled.

The suspect is 28 - 32 years old, 6'0, and 200 pounds with a light beard.  He was wearing a blue baseball hat, blue jacket, dark t-shirt and dark pants.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Akron Police at 330-375-2181.
