WINTER HAVEN — Police are investigating an armed robbery Friday night of a Dollar General store on W Lake Ruby Drive.
About 9:30 p.m., a man in a black mask pulled a handgun on a clerk just outside the store, police said. He held the gun to the clerk's back and followed her inside the store. Another store clerk, who saw the robbery, called 911 and ducked into the break room, unseen by the armed man, police said.
The first clerk opened the register and gave the armed man cash, according to reports. The man then ran away from the store.
Police are still looking for the man. Anyone with information can call 1-800-226-TIPS.
