Kimmy's Korner grocery store on the 800 block of Main Street in Covington was robbed on Monday afternoon.

Covington Police said Tuesday that the suspect is still on the loose and that an investigation is also underway on the Ohio side of the river.

Officers responded to Kimmy's at around 2:30 p.m. Monday and spoke to multiple witnesses who described the suspect as a white male in a Bengals t-shirt, orange shorts, black and red hat, and sunglasses. He entered the store, they said, and robbed it at gun point.

The suspect made off with cash and one man's wallet.

Police believe the man was involved in multiple incidents in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati.

A video of the suspect was obtained from another location and police were able to identify him as Robert Schneider, 36. 

He is considered armed and dangerous, and currently has an active warrant for first degree robbery and an absconding warrant from the state probation and parole office.

Police say not to approach Schneider, but if you see him, call 911.
