Update: Just before 1 pm today officers surrounded a residence in the 8400 block of Elm in Machesney Park. They believe the suspect is inside. They have several officers and 2 police K-9 units on scene.
They were able to detain one person, unknown if it is the suspect. They are transporting the person to the detectives office.
Around 3:15 am this morning several officers were dispatched to Mobil on N Second st in reference to an armed robbery.
Details are still minimal right now, but reports of a woman was robbed at gunpoint at the Mobil station. Sounds like it was to the actual business. The police received an alarm just prior to getting the call.
Suspect is described as a White Male, 6’0 wearing a tan car hart jacket, purple bandanna over his head and armed with a gun. Last seen near Greenview.
Police are setting up a police perimeter. If you live in the area, lock your doors and call the police is you see anyone fitting the description.
Still developing, check back later for updates.
