Two people arrested after robbery at Youngstown Family Dollar

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Two people suspected of robbing a business on Youngstown's south side at gunpoint are in the Mahoning County jail.

Fifty-seven-year-old Donna Ross of Austintown, and 48-year-old Robert Perry who is listed as homeless were arrested for Wednesday's robbery of the Family Dollar store at Glenwood and Indianola.

A police report states Perry allegedly approached the store counter, pulled out a black firearm, and demanded money.

The clerk told police she could not open the register so Perry pulled the register out from behind the counter and fled in a silver vehicle.

The report states a witness in the parking lot then followed the vehicle to 24 West Ravenwood Avenue in Youngstown, where Perry got out and was later arrested.

Officers also arrested Ross who they say was driving the getaway vehicle.

Police say a photo of the robbery suspect from the store's camera system helped them identify Perry.

Both suspects remain jailed awaiting arraignment.
