DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) - The Dothan Police Department is currently searching for a suspect involved in an armed robbery case that occurred on Monday.

Police responded to the 1000 block of East Newton Street around 10 a.m. on Monday where they made contact with a male victim who was visiting a home in the area.

According to police, the victim said he went outside and picked a pecan up off the ground, and when he stood back up a male, in his mid 20's, was pointing a gun at his face.

Police say the suspect asked the victim for everything he had, and the victim handed him a few dollars and an old flip phone.

According to the victim, the suspect ran west on Newton Street.

Police have tried to track the cell phone, but it is believed that it was discarded since it was an older phone.
