Milwaukee Police Investigating Dollar Tree Armed Robbery

Milwaukee Police are investigating an armed burglary that happened Sunday night at the Dollar Tree at West Historic Mitchell Blvd. and S. 13th St.

Police say the suspect walked into the store around 9 o'clock as the store was about to close and demanded money at gunpoint from an employee.

Police tell us the suspect ran from the store and about $4,000 worth of property was stolen.

Employees were back to work Monday morning but could not comment on the situation.

A company spokesperson told CBS58 that they are cooperating with police on the investigation.

CBS58's Kyle Aevermann spoke with a couple of other businesses in the area who say crime can be an issue.

Imran Roy, manager of the Dollar Bazzar, across the street says he’s getting concerned since the temperatures are getting warmer.

"Of course it also makes me scared too because we’re all in the neighborhood.  Once they attack one store, they’ll hit one after another one. More police should be out here in the evenings, summer is coming and there is probably going to be more trouble out there,” Roy said.

Milwaukee Police have not released a suspect description and say they are continuing to investigate Sunday's robbery.
