Toledo Police are asking for your help finding an aggravated robbery suspect, who may had stolen items from a store in order to detail a vehicle.
However, the vehicle may not be his own as he fled the scene of the crime on a yellowish bike.
Investigators say a black man, possibly in his 40's, walked into the Family Dollar on Dorr Street just after 5 p.m. Monday night.
A police report states that's when a store employee saw the suspect hiding items like tire cleaner and car air fresheners in his coat.
Employees approached the suspect as he was leaving but he refused to admit he took any of the items.
A female worker then tried to remove the items from the suspect's coat and her hand became caught in his jacket.
The two would struggle for a minute, the victim told police she was "thrown around like a ragdoll by the suspect", before the suspect fled the scene on a bike.
Part of the suspect's coat was ripped during the altercation, he was also wearing a grey sweatshirt and black pants at the time of the robbery.
The suspect is described as being about 5'8", weighs around 180 pound and was last seen with a red book bag.
