CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Cleveland police are looking for the man who was armed with a kitchen knife when he robbed a Family Dollar on the city’s West side.

Officers said on May 4 the man walked into the store on Clark Avenue just after 1 p.m.

He then went to the register and told the cashier ‘give me the money’.

The register drawer was open, but the cashier shut it and that’s when the robber pulled out a kitchen knife, pushed the monitor screen out of the way and again demanded the money.
