CLEVELAND, Ohio — Police are looking for a man who attempted to steal a candy bar at a Cleveland convenience store and then punched the clerk in the face.

The crime at that point became a robbery, police say.

Police are now asking for help identifying the suspect. Anyone with information is asked to call 216-623-5218.
