A Family Dollar in Akron was robbed Tuesday afternoon.
Police said a man walked into the South Main Street store around 4:30 p.m. and handed the clerk a note that demanded money.
The man threatened to shoot the worker if she did not comply.
The robber — who is described as a bald, white male, about 45 years old and about 6 feet tall — ran from the store with cash. He wore sunglasses, a blue Adidas jacket with white stripes on the sleeves, blue jeans and white shoes.
