AKRON -- "Don't make this hard. Give me the money and you won't get shot."
Those are the words Akron Police say an unknown male told a Family Dollar store clerk Wednesday afternoon.
Police say it was shortly after 3 p.m. when the suspect entered the store at 1156 East Tallmadge Avenue. Employees reported that the suspect kept one hand in his pocket as if he had a gun.
The clerk handed over an unreported amount of cash and the suspect fled the scene.
Authorities estimate the suspect is between 28-32 years old.
Anybody with information is asked to contact the Akron Police Department.
