AKRON -- Police are turning to YouTube (see their video above) once again in hopes somebody can help them identify and locate an aggravated robbery suspect.

The two-minute video features surveillance footage shot from multiple cameras on Sept. 7 at the La Chiquita Market in the 1400 block of Copley Road.

It was approximately 12:20 p.m. when a male walks inside and approaches the counter. After pulling out a handgun and pointing it at two women, he puts a black bag on the counter, which the victims filled with cash.

The suspect then takes the bag filled with money and walks toward the back of the store before eventually fleeing on foot through the front door.

Anybody with information is asked to call Detective Lt. Whiddon at 330-375-2490 or leave a tip at AkronCops.org.

Police warn the suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.
