(MURFREESBORO) There was an armed robbery shortly before 8:00 o'clock Saturday (8/3/2019) night at the Dollar General Store at 2984 South Church Street.
Murfreesboro Police surrounded the Dollar General to look for evidence and talk with witnesses.
Police Public Information Officer told WGNS that the suspect was armed with a handgun, and dressed in black with a white bandana covering their face.
Although only one person committed the crime inside the store, witnesses in the parking lots at Dollar General and Toot's say they saw two persons running across South Church Street. They may have had a get away car in one of the parking lots across the street,
This chain of retail stores seems to be attracting crimes of this type. Dollar General on Manson Pike was robbed at 10:15AM Thursday morning last month on July 25th. Then their store on Epps Mill Road was robbed just before 10:00PM Saturday night, March 30, 2019. In that case, in addition to the robbery, the clerk was also assaulted.
