Worthington: Bruegger's Bagels robbed Aug. 9

Bruegger's Bagels, 530 High St., was robbed at gunpoint about 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 9.

He told the clerk he had a gun, though none was displayed. He fled on foot, southbound in the alley behind the bagel shop.

Officers and a helicopter search the area, but they did not find the suspect.

He is described as a black man, about 20-30 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing about 160 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black cargo shorts and a blue bandanna with an unknown print.
