GRAY, Ky. (WYMT) - The Knox County Sheriff’s Department says that a robbery took place Friday night at a Dollar General in Gray.

Surveillance footage shows a man in a gray Abercrombie 74 New York sweatshirt, dark blue pants, white bandanna, and a dark face mask entering the store and pointing a gun at an employee and walking him to the register before demanding money.

“About 20 after nine, last night, we received a call that somebody had came into the Dollar General store in Gray armed with a gun and robbed them,” deputy Elijah Broughton said. “Took cash out of both registers and the safe that they had behind the counter.”

The suspect then left and the employee believes he left in a four-door black car headed towards Corbin.

Broughton says that while the department has no leads at this time, he encourages anyone with information on the case to reach out.

“If anybody has any information whatsoever that could lead to an arrest on this guy, all tips will remain anonymous,” Broughton said.

If you have any information regarding this incident or you can identify the suspect, you are encouraged to contact the Knox County Sheriff’s Department at 606-546-3181. All calls will be kept confidential.
