Man pulls gun on North Summit employees

A man reportedly pulled a gun on two employees at a North Summit business on Friday night, according to the Summit County Sheriffs Office.

At around 10:30 p.m., dispatch received a report that a man had approached the business after hours asking to buy food. According to the report, when the employees told the man they were closed he went to his car, retrieved a black semi-automatic pistol and pointed it at them through the locked door. He then fled.

The employees described the suspect as a slender man in his 30s wearing a gray and black hoodie. He drove away in an SUV described as a possible Jeep Grand Cherokee, cherry red with round headlights.

Detective Kacey Bates said the Sheriffs Office has not received any similar reports since the incident occurred. She said it was an isolated incident.

There wasnt really any interaction between the suspect and the individuals that were involved in this case and we have very little suspect and vehicle information, Bates said. At this time, it is still an active investigation and we are actively looking for the individual.
