Central Ohio Crime Stoppers is requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect involved in an Attempted Robbery which took place in Circleville, Ohio.
On January 28, 2018, at approximately 5:55pm, an unidentified male entered the Kroger store located at 175 Lancaster Pike in Circleville. The male lingered in the store before he approached the counter, passed a note to the clerk demanding money, and placed a bag on the counter. When the clerk walked away from the counter, apparently the suspect got spooked and fled the store, on foot, with the note and his bag, without money. The suspect is described as: Male/White, 6’, 25-30, wearing hooded sweatshirt with hat underneath hood, gloves, possibly 2 pairs of sunglasses, and with a metal contraption on his bottom teeth. Surveillance photos of the suspect may be viewed below.
