Battle Creek Police seek armed robbery suspect


BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- Battle Creek Police are investigating a Monday morning armed robbery.

Officers responded to a hold up alarm at a Speedway gas station on West Columbia Avenue just after 3:30 a.m. Monday.  Two employees were inside when a man entered the store with a handgun, demanding money before fleeing on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.  A K-9 track of the suspect went cold behind Lassen Automotive down the road near 20th Street.

The suspect is described as a light-skinned black male in his late teens or early 20s with a thin build standing approximately five-feet, six-inches in height and weighing around 140-pounds.  At the time he was seen wearing a red hooded sweat shirt with black print, a gold do-rag, black shorts with white stripes, and gray and white striped athletic shoes, carrying the money away in a black and yellow single-strap satchel described as a lunch bag.

The weapon in the incident was described as a black semi-automatic handgun with silver visible on top.  No one was injured and an investigation in the case continues.
