DETROIT, Mich. (WJBK) -

Detroit Police are looking for a suspect wanted for an armed robbery at a Dollar General store on Detroit's west side. Police tell us he walked into the store on Fenkell around 3:15pm Sunday carrying an AR-15 style assault rifle. The suspect demanded money from the cash register; the clerk handed it over and he took off. No one was hurt.

We're told the thief took off in an older model four-door white, Buick which was waiting in the parking lot. The partial license plate is "4047."

The person police are looking for is described as a black male, in his 20's, 6,0", and approximately 200 lbs. The suspect has a light complexion. He was wearing a dark sweatshirt with a hood, blue jeans, and white gym shoes.

If you recognize the suspect or have any information about this unsolved crime, call Detroit Police or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-SPEAKUP.

    The city of Detroit says workers and retirees have approved pension cuts, a crucial step to emerging from the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. The city reported results Monday after two months of balloting ended July 11. A judge still must hold a trial to determine if Detroit's overall bankruptcy plan is fair and feasible, but support from retirees is vital.
