Today’s Midweek Special focuses on a Robbery which took place in Columbus.
On Tuesday, July 14, 2020, at 2:54pm, the manager at the Dollar General located at 1350 W. Broad Street, was cashing out his register. While he had the cash drawer open, the suspect walked up with money in his hand asking for cigarettes. The suspect noticed the cash, then demanded money “Because he has kids.”
The suspect pulled out a small blade which he held in his left hand and pointed it at the manager. The manager stepped away from the register and the suspect grabbed the cash drawer and ran off. The suspect was described as: 5’7-5’10, medium build (150-170lbs.), wearing a black baseball cap, blue “surgical” mask, red “OSU” t-shirt and black shorts. Surveillance photos of the suspect may be viewed on our website at www.stopcrime.org.
