Sources are reporting a possible armed robbery in Rockford. 

It happened around 9:30 pm near Forest Hills and Pepper. 

3 suspects appeared to have robbed,  a white male with a baseball hat and carrying a case of beer that was walking on the SE corner of the intersection, near Wild berry Apartments. Three suspects all concealing their identities, ran up on the victim and appeared to have battered the victim and stole his items.  

Police were called, but the 911 call taker told the reporting party to call county police, even though it happened in Rockford jurisdiction. 

Unknown if police ever responded, because the reporting party was trying to explain to the 911 center that it was a Rockford call, based on the location. 

And the 911 center told the reporting party to hang up and call county police.
