Dearborn — Police are asking the public for help to identify a man who snatched and grabbed some money from a drug store's cash register.

The robbery happened Friday at the CVS Pharmacy at 10335 Warren Ave., officials said Thursday.

Police said a man described as muscular and who was wearing a red shirt and black pants approached the store's checkout counter to make a purchase. When the female cashier opened the register, the suspect leaned over the counter and grabbed money from the drawer, officials said.

The cashier tried to stop the suspect from taking the money, but he pushed her away and then fled the scene, according to authorities.

The incident was captured on the store's video surveillance system.


“The boldness of this act is disturbing, as this suspect committed this act with no concern for the employee or other shoppers," Police Chief Ronald Haddad said in a statement. "The Dearborn Police Department is hoping someone can identify this suspect before his actions result in greater violence.”

Anyone with information about the incident or suspect should call Dearborn Police at (313) 943-2241 or Crime Stoppers of Michigan at (800) 773-2587.

Officials said Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for tips leading to the suspect's arrest.
