State police are asking the public’s help identifying a suspect in a daylight robbery Saturday at a Dollar Tree store in Somerset Township.

Troopers said a white man between 30- and 40-years-old and about 6 feet tall entered the Somerset Township store on North Center Avenue at 2:10 p.m. and threatened a clerk with a knife.

Police said the man demanded all the money in the store’s safe and cash register. The amount stolen was not disclosed.

Trooper Joseph Kozuch said the suspect had dirty blond hair, weighed about 170 pounds, and was wearing a dark-colored baseball hat, medium blue T-shirt, black shorts and black flip-flops.

After the robbery, the suspect ran toward a nearby Walmart parking lot.

Police released a photograph of the suspect taken from a store surveillance camera.

Anyone with information is asked to call Kozuch at 814-445-4104

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
