Warren police investigate armed robbery at Dollar General

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

Warren police were out on the scene of an alleged armed robbery at a Dollar General store Saturday evening. 

Dispatchers said around 7 pm, a man went into the Dollar General on Niles Road Southeast with a cream colored bag over his nose. 

They said the alleged robber made an employee get on the ground as he held a 9 mm handgun. 

The man then left the store on foot, but it's not clear if he took anything, according to dispatchers.

He was seen wearing a black hoodie with gray lettering on it. 

Police still are searching for the suspect.
