An armed suspect robbed the Kroger grocery store at 1232 S. Hairston Rd. one early morning last week, according to a DeKalb County incident report.
In the Dec. 6 incident, which occurred just before 3 a.m., a cashier told police that the suspect walked into the store and placed a silver handgun near her side, then said, "Open the register."
The cashier said she was forced at gunpoint to open three registers and was not sure how much the suspect stole, the report states. She was not injured.
Two workers were in the back of the store when the robbery occurred, according to the report; neither saw the crime, but one did see the suspect leave.
The security officer was on his lunch break during the incident, the report states.
The suspect was described as a dark-skinned black male, 6 feet, with broad shoulders, hazel eyes, wearing a gray hoodie, black scarf covering his mouth and red bookbag on his back. He was wearing black shoes with a gold or yellow stripe on the side.
According to the report, the incident was caught by the store's security cameras.
