September 5th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up
Aside from a few vehicle stops, a theft, and a disturbance this morning got off to a fairly calm start.
At 4:53, Police were called to the Dillon’s at 1015 W 23rd Street on a report of a robbery. An employee was confronted by a man who reportedly told the employee to “put money in the bag.” The employee told the would be robber to “walk away.” From the initial reports, it sounded like that was exactly what the suspect did. He was last seen walking away from the building. A police broadcast described the suspect as a white male, around six foot tall, with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a black “Ninja” mask, black jacket with a hood, and jeans. Officers also said that no one reported seeing a weapon displayed.
Officers investigated a non-injury accident in the 100 block of McDonald Drive around 6:50 a.m..
None of this morning’s activity was reported to have involved any serious injuries.
