HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Family Dollar on Edwards Street in Hattiesburg was robbed by an armed suspect Tuesday morning, but the suspect didn’t make it far.

Hattiesburg Police Department spokesman Ryan Moore said the robbery happened around 11 a.m. Clifton Siggers, 45, was arrested and charged with one count of armed robbery.

Moore said the suspect threatened the store clerk with a knife while demanding money. Siggers then ran from the scene, but was caught by police in the woods by a nearby apartment complex.

It’s unclear if anything was taken from the store.
