A Salvation Army bell-ringer was robbed of his entire kettle by four men. Here are two versions of that story.
The Associated Press says police are looking for tips, but unhelpfully won`t tell their readers what the criminals, still at large, look like:
Ohio Salvation Army kettle stolen at knifepoint - Yahoo! News
NORTH CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Police say an Ohio Salvation Army bell-ringer outside a Kmart store was robbed of his red kettle by four men with a knife.
North Canton police say they don`t know how much donated money was in the kettle when it was taken Saturday evening.
Police Sgt. Frank Kemp tells WJW-TV (http://bit.ly/vPzm84) the four men, all wearing dark clothing and hoodies, threatened to use the knife. Kemp says the bell-ringer followed the Salvation Army`s standard procedure in such cases and did not put up a struggle. The robbers took off on foot.
Police are asking for tips to help find them.
And here`s the actual descripton from Fox8.com
"Sgt. Frank Kemp said the robbers didn`t just take the money, they took the whole kettle. `He wasn`t able to give us a very big description except that there were three black males, one white male. They threatened to use a knife. He did see a knife clip,` Sgt. Kemp said."
