South Bend police are investigating a Friday afternoon armed robbery at Low Bob's Discount Tobacco.

The store, located at 4505 Ameritech Drive, is part of a plaza near the Cleveland Road entrance to U.S. 31.

At around 4:00 p.m., a man circled the store's parking lot a few times and then parked.

Inside the store, he pulled up his shirt to reveal a gun and demanded money.

After receiving a large amount of cash, the man drove away from the scene in a silver Mitsubishi hatchback and headed toward Adams.

The suspect is described as a white man in his 30s or 40s wearing blue jean shorts and a baseball cap.

If you have any information on this man's identity or location, call the SBPD non-emergency number at 574.235.9201.
