DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating the late Sunday afternoon robbery of a Dollar General store in south Dover.

Troopers said that shortly before 6 p.m., a man entered the store on Gateway South Boulevard, where he asked for a pack of cigarettes and paid for the purchase.

As the cash register was opened, the man reached over the counter and began pulling money from it, police said.

The clerk was not injured, and no weapon was displayed during the robbery.

Police described the suspect as a white man between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot-8, with short black hair and a goatee. He was last seen wearing black shorts, a white T-shirt, a black baseball hat and black sunglasses.
