LIBERTY TWP, Ohio -

Police say they want to hear from anyone who can identify a suspect who robbed a township business.

Detectives are using social media to circulate surveillance images showing the man they say held up the Dollar General on Logan Way Wednesday evening.

Police say the suspect walked up to the counter at around 9:30 pm making it appear that he wanted to make a purchase.   

When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the suspect pulled knife from his sock, reached over the counter and grabbed the cash.

The man then ran out of the store.

The suspect is described as a black male wearing a dark stocking cap, striped shirt, and gray sweatpants.

Police ask anyone who has information or can recognize the suspect to call the tip line  at 330-539-9830.

Police say all information will be considered confidential.
