Police investigating an unarmed robbery

Sturgis police are investigating an unarmed robbery that took place over the weekend at a business on East Chicago Road.

According to a department media release, a white male in his early 20s instigated a transaction around 10 p.m. Sunday at the Admiral gas station. When the clerk opened the register, the man grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash. Store personnel and bystanders attempted to apprehend the man, but he fled the scene on foot.

A state police K-9 unit attempted to trace the suspect but lost his trail several blocks away.

There were no injuries as a result of the incident.
