AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

Shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday, a female driver for Triple D Ice Cream reported she was robbed in her ice cream truck near the intersection of Dayton Street and East Tallmadge Avenue in Akron. 

The driver stated a male approached her truck while she was waiting for the traffic light and asked if she was still selling ice cream. When she replied "no," he walked around to the other side of the truck, pulled out a silver handgun, and demanded the money box. The driver handed the suspect the money box and drove off. The suspect fled in an unknown direction.
