A terrifying armed robbery attempt took place at the Dollar Store on Clague Road in North Olmsted when a gunman jumped the checkout counter, aimed a handgun at the clerk and threatened to shoot her in the face unless she handed over cash register contents.
Here is the video:
North Olmsted Police responded to the store at 1850 hours on Feb. 5. The clerk told police that the gunman jumped onto the checkout counter and kept stating, “Give me the money, give me the money,”
The clerk was unable to open the register. A co-worker in the back room heard the screaming and ran out but was also unable to open the register.
The male gunman and an accomplice both fled the store. The accomplice, a suspected lookout, was heard to say, “We gotta go!” Both men were dressed in black with bandanas. They did not steal anything.
Police conducted an extensive search of the area and have interviewed witnesses. Further video evidence is being analyzed.
