He approached a store employee, who was behind the cash register, and demanded all of the money from the cash register. The cashier locked the cash register and backed away and out of reach of the suspect.
After a unsucessful attempt at opening the register himself, police say the man ran out of the store and down a side street, without the money.
No one was injured.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Waterford Police at (248) 618-6053 (Det. Greg Drumb) or Crime
Stoppers at 1 (800) Speak Up.
