Police are seeking a person they say robbed the Family Dollar Store in Unity Sunday evening and fled the scene.

Police received a report at about 7:30 p.m. that store's cashier had been robbed at gunpoint.

The suspect reportedly entered the store and threatened the cashier with a pistol. The cashier turned over an unreported amount of money and the suspect fled the scene on foot.

Police used canines to track the suspect, but were unsuccessful.

The investigation is ongoing.
