COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Officials are trying to identify the man who attacked an employee and robbed a gaming house in east Columbus last month.
Officials said the owner of Jax gaming house was heading into his store at about 10:46am on Jan. 5 when an unidentified male entered behind him. The suspect pulled out a handgun and demanded money. The suspect then struck the store owner several times in the head with the weapon before they both headed to an office.
The robber made the owner open the cash drawer. The suspect then grabbed a lot of cash and left the store.
