Police were on patrol near the 100 block of Army Post Road just after 2:30 a.m. on Nov. 23, when a Kum and Go store clerk waved them down. The clerk said he had just been robbed at gunpoint by three men who left in a black Cadillac. Surveillance footage reportedly shows the three males enter the store, one suspect points a gun at the victim, who then opens the register, and then reaches in and takes out money, followed by a second suspect, while the third stands at the door to act as a lookout. All suspects reportedly had on black masks, but they did not wear gloves. Investigations continue.
Police responded to an alarm at T-Mobile, 1264 E. 14th St., to find the front glass door had been shattered with a concrete brick, which was still lying in the store on the floor. Police also found another shattered glass door on the east side and a brick outside the east door, but entry did not appear to have been made through it. Police were unable to determine if any property was stolen. Investigations continue.
