CLEVELAND, Ohio — Police are asking for help identifying the suspect who assaulted a man he was meeting for a marijuana buy.

Cleveland police say on May 20, a man called his contact to buy marijuana and agreed to meet at a Speedway store, 2202 Broadview Road.

Once the man arrived and met the suspect, who was not the person he knew from a previous buy, he agreed to the exchange in the bathroom. But once inside the bathroom, the suspect pulled a gun and took the victim’s money and car keys.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male with a light complexion who was wearing khaki shorts and a blue hoodie. Anyone with information is asked to call police.
