KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -- A criminal took the situation into his own hands - literally - after the clerk he was robbing failed to open up the register.
Kansas City, Kansas, police responded at 9:47 p.m. Thursday to the Family Dollar near 12th Street and Central Avenue in response to an armed robbery. Police said a man wearing a black T-shirt and khaki pants came into the store with a knife, demanding money.
When the clerk could not open the cash register drawer, the robber took the whole thing and fled on foot, police said.
The suspect is still being sought. No one was injured in the incident.
