Police said Thursday they are looking for a man who scuffled with employees at a Dollar General store in southwest Oklahoma City after stealing cash from the store's register.

A surveillance camera captured the incident about 11 a.m. Saturday at the Dollar General at 2905 SW 74. The video shows the man waiting in line behind another customer at the store.

When the clerk opened the register, the man leaned over the counter and started taking money from the drawer. The clerk shoved the man away and other employees in the store showed up to help.

The man scuffled with three employees before running out of the store. He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police said anyone with information or who recognizes the man from the video or a picture they released Thursday can call Crime Stoppers at 235-7300. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward.
