Warren police are hoping someone can identify a man who claimed he was robbing a business to feed his child but ended up walking away empty-handed.

The police department posted on its Facebook page surveillance pictures from the August 16 robbery attempt at the Goodwill store on Elm Road NE.

The cashier told officers that a man handed her a note saying, "I have a gun, and I need to feed my daughter."

Reports say the cashier told the man that she would need to get her manager and walked away from the register to the back of the store. At that point, the suspect walked out of the store without getting any money.

The suspect was described as a light-skinned black male, standing around 6'0" and weighing about 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt and grey shorts. He was clean-shaven with short hair.

Anyone with any information regarding the suspect's identity is asked to contact Detective Greaver at 330-841-2723.
