By From Staff And Wire Reports

A man robbed a Spokane grocery store manager at gunpoint Monday night. No one was hurt.

The incident occurred about 10:45 p.m. at the Albertson’s at 1617 Northwest Boulevard.

Police said the manager was counting money at the store safe when the bandit walked up, pulled out a gun and demanded cash.

The victim stuffed an undisclosed amount of money into a garbage bag, and the robber ran away. A police dog tracked the man’s trail a short distance before losing the scent. Police said the robbery was captured on the store’s security camera.

The suspect is a white man between 38 and 45 years old. He is about 5 feet 9 inches tall and 210 pounds. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a green cap and coat and carrying a brown leather fanny pack. , DataTimes
