Hilliard Big Lots robbed at knifepoint


HILLIARD, Ohio (WCMH) — Columbus Police are investigating after a suspect robbed a Big Lots store in Hilliard at knifepoint Tuesday afternoon.

According to police, a man entered the Big Lots store on the 5400 block of Roberts Road at approximately 1:31 p.m.

The man picked a drink from the cooler and approached the counter. When the clerk rang up the purchase, the suspect gave her a $5 bill, police said.

The man left the store on foot, running east.
