DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Dayton Police are looking for the man who they say robbed a Family Dollar.

Police were called to the store located at 3222 Salem Avenue after 8 p.m. Friday.

Workers said a man walked into the store and asked where the deodorant and baby powder were. They said he retrieved the items, walked to the front desk, implied he had a gun in his pocket, and demanded money. The manager followed his orders, opened the register, put the money in a plastic grocery bag, and handed it to the suspect. He then walked out of the store.

The suspect got away with more than $120 in cash.

One customer told workers she recognized the suspect from previously being on the news. Another customer said she saw him get into a silver truck and flee the scene.

Police said the suspect is described as a clean-shaven man in his mid-20s, 5’6″, 185-190 lbs., wearing a black leather coat with a gray hoodie underneath, black pants, black shoes, black gloves, and a gray beanie.
