Beacon Journal staff report
Akron police hope surveillance video will help them identify a man who robbed a South Main Street discount store last week.
Police said the man walked into Family Dollar on South Main Street on Sept. 24 and handed the clerk a note that demanded money. He threatened to shoot the worker if she did not comply.
The robber — a bald, white male, about 45 years old and about 6 feet tall — ran from the store with an undisclosed amount of cash. He wore sunglasses, a blue adidas jacket with white stripes on the sleeves, blue jeans and white shoes.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Akron police at 330-375-2490. Information also can be provided anonymously by calling Summit County Crimestoppers at 330-434-COPS(2677). Tipsters may qualify for a cash reward.
