Detroit police have released photos of a man they say is wanted for an armed robbery of a Family Dollar store last weekend.

According to police, the man walked into the Family Dollar in the 22000 block of Grand River around 4:30 p.m. June 11.

He approached the counter as if he was making a purchase, and told the cashier who was putting money into the safe to "give him the money," and had his hand behind his back like he was armed.

Then, he forced the victim over to another register and took more money. He then walked out of the store.

The suspect is described as a black male, 5-feet-8-inches tall, 245 pounds with a goatee and light complexion. He was wearing a black and white shirt and blue pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 313-596-5851 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
