Incident Date

07/11/2018 - 6:51 PM


401 N. Third St. (Kwik Trip)


Male, white, late 20's, 5'11" to 6', 165 pounds, light brown hair, full light brown beard, wearing gray Chicago Bulls baseball cap, green bandana around neck, black shirt, blue jeans, white shoes, driving a black Jeep.


Detectives believe a robbery and an attempted robbery from Wednesday night were committed by the same person.

Around 6:00 p.m., a man demanded cash after entering a BP gas station, 4102 Commercial Ave. The clerk said the would-be robber kept a hand behind his back, and the victim believed the intruder was armed with a weapon. Instead of handing over money, the victim fled out a back door and called 911. He saw the suspect drive off in a black Jeep.

Approximately 50 minutes later, surveillance images show the same suspect inside a Kwik Trip, 401 N. Third St. Once again, he keeps a hand behind his back while demanding money. This time he was given currency before speeding away in a black Jeep.
