After a month plagued by break-ins and robberies, another Columbus business has fallen victim to a similar crime.

According to an Ohio State University safety alert, an individual entered the CVS store located just south of OSU campus at 1634 Neil Ave., at 4:05 p.m. Donning a black hoodie and a facemask, he brandished a knife in front of an employee before demanding money from the cash register, the alert said.

Afterwards, the suspect fled north on Neil Avenue and east on 11th Avenue on a bicycle in what appeared to be a red jacket. No injuries were reported, and no arrests have been made.
