The employee walked to the back room to call 911. When the suspect followed the employee, with his hand in his pocket as if he had a weapon and again demanded the employee open the safe, the employee told the man he called 911.
The suspect exited the store and fled in a 1990s Lincoln Continental with an Indiana plate bearing a handicap designation. There was a black woman sitting in the passenger seat.
The suspect is described as a 6-foot to 6-foot-3 black man in his early 50s with a medium to heavy build. He wore a black coat, black fedora-style hat.
Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 436-7867.
