Portage County Sheriff David Doak is requesting the public's assistance in identifying a subject involved in a robbery that occurred at the Dollar Tree store in the Meadowview Square shopping plaza at 2600 S.R. 59 in Franklin Township on Jan. 13.
At approximately 4:25 p.m. that day, a black male in his 30s, approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall and 190 pounds, entered the store and confronted the manager in a rear storage area, he said.
He demanded money and had the manager go to the office, where he obtained an undetermined amount of cash. He exited the store and fled on foot, Doak said.
The suspect was wearing a navy blue hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and a navy blue baseball cap.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the sheriff's office at 330-296-5100, extension 0.
