Pulaski is accused of robbing the store at knife point. Police say he got away with $40.00, but not before threatening the workers saying, “Give me all your 20s or I’ll cut you.”

“It’s a very busy intersection, but the drive thru itself at 10:30 is not very busy. There were no other customers inside and apparently the suspect lives in close proximity and he road his bike up here and conveniently robbed it and drove back home,” said Sgt. Moises Perez, Dayton Police Department.

Police are now investigating whether Pulaski is connected to other area robberies.
