Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man accused of robbing a Family Dollar store at gunpoint.

The store is located at 401 NW 125th Street in North Miami.

Authorities say the man entered the store carrying a gun and told everyone to get down. He went to the register and took money out of the register, investigators said.

The suspect fled eastbound on NW 125th. Police said it’s possible the man lives in the area, and they’ll check nearby apartments.

Authorities described the suspect as 6 feet tall and 180 pounds. He was wearing black pants, flip flops and a white shirt underneath a blue jacket.
