In Oct., a gunman entered Snappy Gas located at 4189 Ridge Road.
Police reported the suspect pulled a silver gun with a pink stripe and yelled “give me the money."
The suspect shot a round off in the direction of the clerk, then fled from the store in a possible gray or blue Kia Rio.
Police described the suspect as a white man, 5’11" to 6’ tall, 180 pounds, wearing a black Strongsville Track and Field hooded sweatshirt with a horse image on it, a navy blue Cavs finals hat, and black and white tennis shoes.
On Nov. 1 police reported a robber hit the Family Dollar located at 6605 Clark Avenue and attempted to steal glade air fresheners without paying for the items.
Police reported the suspect attempted to exit the store and a store employee blocked the exit using a broom as a defensive weapon.
The suspect then pulled a knife and threatened to stab the employee, elevating the theft to an aggravated robbery. The suspect and victim wrestled and the suspect fled the store.
