Franklin County sheriff's deputies were searching for a woman accused of robbing a Speedway gas station in west Columbus.
It happened around 5:15 Wednesday morning on West Broad Street.
Deputies arrived on scene moments after the clerk tripped the store alarm.
The clerk told investigators that the suspect had a metal object in her pocket.
He said she handed him a note demanding him to put all the money and phones from the store into a bag.
Witnesses said she ran away too quickly to determine whether she was working alone.
Deputies said she was wearing a black coat and a full head and face mask.
