TYLER, TEXAS (KETK) — Tyler police are still looking for the man responsible for the Family Dollar robbery Sunday morning.

We spoke with the Family Dollar assistant manager Erica Cruz came face -to- face with the robber.
Cruz says a black man who looked to be in his 30s walked in the store covering his face with his shirt and demanded cash. He then went around to the front of the register where Cruz was ringing up a customer. Cruz says, the man threatened her by saying he’d blow her head off. She feared of the man on the other side of the counter. She wasn’t sure if he had a gun
