Original

The Kewanee Police Department is looking for help to identify a suspect in an armed robbery.

Police say the incident occurred Friday morning around 4:26.  

They say the suspect entered the Shell Express Station at 511 S. Main Street and remained until other patrons had left the building.  

He then approached the counter, displayed a knife and demanded the register cash.

Police say he left the gas station without any money, and left on West Prospect street in a small red car.

The suspect is described as a white male with tattoos on his face under both eyes and another tattoo on his temple. They say he was wearing a brown coat and hat.

Anyone recognizing the suspect is asked to call the Kewanee Police Department at 309-853-1911 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-227-2324.
