Store robbed

AKRON: An Akron discount store was robbed Saturday by a man who threatened clerks with a gun that was never seen.

The robbery unfolded about 6 p.m. inside the Dollar General Store, 855 S. Canton Road, when a man walked inside, approached a cashier and demanded the entire cash drawer, according to Akron police.

The clerk, according to police, thought the man was joking. The man then put his hands in his pants and said: “Give me the money or I’ll shoot.”

The robber is white and in his late 20s to early 30s. He has blond or strawberry blond hair, blue eyes, a beard and a mustache. He was wearing an orange winter hat, gray long-sleeved shirt and black pants.
