An employee at the "Express Check Cashing & Payday Loan" in Davenport is recovering after getting beat up during a robbery.

Police were called to the 400 block of N. Division St. just after 10 a.m. Monday. The employee told police a man walked into the business and demanded money, assaulting the employee in the process.

No weapons were used but the employee suffered minor injuries.

Local police say the best thing to do if you're ever an employee or a customer in this situation is cooperate. You should also pay attention to details like scars, the shape of his or her eyes and look for tattoos.

"Understand that there will be people there that will be asking you to try to remember exactly everything that had transpired," said Rock Island County Sheriff Jeff Boyd.

Boyd also says, while you never want to imagine being robbed, you should. If you go over the scenario in your mind, you'll be more prepared for the real thing.
