Cops ask for help to solve strong-arm robbery

Police are asking for help in identifying the man who committed a strong arm robbery at the Elwell Corners store on West Lincoln Road last week.
A man in his early 20s, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and jeans, entered the store just as the clerk was counting the money about 8:30 p.m. Thanksgiving night, said Michigan State Police Trooper Mike Floriano.
The man walked right over to the clerk, told her to give him the money, and grabbed the money from her. She in turn, grabbed his arm and managed to get a few of the bills back. But Floriano said the suspect made off with about $400 .
The clerk saw no car and heard no car door slam after he fled the store.
The suspect is described as 5 ft. 9 to 10 inches, with short dark hair and dark, thick eyebrows. He had acne and acne scars on his cheeks and weighed between 140 to 150 pounds. He was not wearing a mask, and no weapon was seen or mentioned.
