Family Dollar robbed, suspect fakes gun to scare clerk

The surveillance video shows a good look at the suspect. The surveillance video shows a good look at the suspect.

Another local dollar store was robbed on Tuesday, May 6. This time it was the Family Dollar on Ridge Road in Cleveland. 

The surveillance video shows the suspect leaping over a counter and grabbing a clerk. He makes the clerk think he has a gun, and even as she gets the money, the crook pulls her hair. 

The suspect kept saying, "hurry up mommy" as this happened. And oddly enough, as this went down, the video shows other people walking into the store.

We've seen many dollar stores held up, especially in Cleveland.

Just last weekend, police shot and wounded a man after breaking up a family dollar robbery on East 34th Street and Payne Avenue. 

Investigators hope you can tell them information on the suspect. To the right we have posted his surveillance photos.
