From our friends at Beloit Scanner:
Around 1:20 am (Wednesday Morning/Tuesday Overnight) there was an armed robbery in the 1500 block of Portland in Beloit.
The victim was in their front yard when a Red vehicle pulled up and the suspects got out and pointed a gun to the victims head. The suspects then robbed the victim, then fled the scene on Portland headed towards Grant.
Rockford police were doing a standoff with a suspect on the East side. It started around 5 pm near 13th ave and 12th st.
Several officers were setup around a residence. Some officers had their rifles out. Around 6 pm the suspect came out of the residence and RPD took him into custody. At the time of writing this, it is not yet known what the suspect was wanted for. No other information at this time.
Several police officers from multiple police agencies have a perimeter set up in the area of Auburn and Springfield.
We have been told there was a chase with a white vehicle, that ended up near this location. Sounds like the vehicle may have crashed into a nearby cornfield. The suspects then fled from the scene on foot and police have setup a perimeter.
If you live in the area, or are in the area. Stay inside, just in case they have a police k-9 assisting. No other information is available.
