Providence Police Seek Dollar Store Robber

Providence Police are on the lookout for an armed robber who held up two Family Dollar stores over the weekend.

The suspect, who was wearing all black, a mask and gloves, forced the employees down on the floor at gunpoint as he robbed the stores.  He's described as a light-skinned man about 5 feet 10 inches tall, and he fled both stores in a dark Nissan Maxima.

Regular customers are shocked, and the employees at nearby stores are worried that the man could come back – and some of them work alone at night,worried for their safety.
