The Journal Gazette

A man armed with a handgun robbed the Dollar General at 1915 E. Tillman Road on Sunday and battered an employee in the process.

The gunman came into the store just before 3 p.m. and immediately pointed his weapon at an employee, according to a Fort Wayne Police report.

He ordered the employee into an office with another employee, then demanded money.

When one employee was too slow to give him money, he hit that employee in the head with his gun, according to the report.

He then made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
