DETROIT, Mich. (WJBK) -

Detroit Police are looking for a suspect wanted for an armed robbery at a Dollar General store on Detroit's west side. Police tell us he walked into the store on Fenkell around 3:15pm Sunday carrying an AR-15 style assault rifle. The suspect demanded money from the cash register; the clerk handed it over and he took off. No one was hurt.

We're told the thief took off in an older model four-door white, Buick which was waiting in the parking lot. The partial license plate is "4047."

The person police are looking for is described as a black male, in his 20's, 6,0", and approximately 200 lbs. The suspect has a light complexion. He was wearing a dark sweatshirt with a hood, blue jeans, and white gym shoes.
