Suspect sought in Dollar General Robbery

Team Radio Marketing Group - December 6, 2016 11:15 am

A male, believed to be Caucasian, walked into the Dollar General Store at 801 West Grand in Ponca City about 5:55 p.m. Monday, Dec. 5.

He waited behind another customer at the register closest to the doors. When the clerk opened the register drawer to complete the transaction for the customer ahead of him, he sprayed her face with pepper spray, grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash and left the store on foot. Witnesses said he ran south on Birch Street.

The robbery suspect is described as having a small frame, 5’6” to 5’10” and a light build. At the time of the robbery he was wearing a dark colored hoody, light colored pants and dark shoes. The hoody was covering some of the suspect’s face, but it appeared that he had a beanie cap under the hood of the sweatshirt. He had facial stubble and was likely in his late 20s to early 30s. The suspect was wearing a dark colored glove on his right hand.
