SHEFFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (WOIO) -

A scary situation for a clerk at a Lorain County Dollar General.

A clerk at the Sheffield Center store in Sheffield Township called the Lorain County Sheriff's Office at 7:03 p.m. Thursday about a man who entered the store and began to tear apart the cash register.

The man and the clerk were involved in a brief struggle when the clerk tried to prevent him from leaving.

The man broke free and ran off into a wooded area.

Police and K-9 units searched for the suspect until 7:49 p.m. His identify is not known at this time.  No word yet on how much money was taken from the store.

The suspect is in his 50's, wearing black jeans, white tennis shoes and no shirt.

Call the sheriff's office if you have any information, (440) 329-3709.
