A woman holding a 2-and-a-half foot metal rod, threatened a store manager as she walked away with food from the store.

Court records show that on June 19 around 5:20 a.m., the woman entered the Walgreens store, near 43rd and Glendale avenues, stealing food and an ice cream bar, while threatening the store manager with a 30-inch metal rod. 

Police report that 34-year-old, Dullalle Finney grabbed several food items and an ice cream bar, all worth about $8.76. Finney was confronted by the store manager, when she allegedly held up the metal rod and said, "back up off me before I hit you with this."

The manager called police while following Finney for a short distance. Police say they located her about two blocks away, still holding the metal rod.

Police managed to recover all the stolen food, except for the ice cream bar.

Finney is facing charges of armed robbery and aggravated assault.
