Dallas police say a man held up a Family Dollar clerk and the armored car guard who was collecting the store's deposit. Officials say the man had been paying for a purchase at the store when a Garda armored car guard walked into the Family Dollar on Wednesday afternoon. When the clerk handed the guard the money bag, the suspect pulled out a gun and pointed it at the guard.

Police say they suspect then took the guard's weapon and walked with her outside. The man then fled into a residential area with the deposit bag and the weapons.

No word yet on how much money was in the bag.
