ORIGINAL:

According to dispatchers, police are searching for a woman who got away with cash from a Cross Lanes business.

The call came in just after 9 p.m. Sunday. 

Dispatchers say a woman with sandy blonde hair in a pony-tail, walked into Ivy's gaming parlor in the 4000 block on Washington Street West and brandished a small handgun, demanding cash.

Police are now on the lookout for a gray colored 2011 or 2012 Toyota Corolla.  They say this vehicle could be involved in the robbery.  The vehicle has a plate on the front reading, "number one in Cleveland".  The car has Ohio tags.

Dispatch says the vehicle was last seen headed toward Dunbar or Charleston.

If you have any information, you're asked to contact 911 immediately.  Do not attempt to approach the suspect.
