ALTON, Ill. (KSDK) - Alton police are looking for a man accused of robbery Friday afternoon.
Police were called to the Laclede Community Credit Union in the 2400 block of State Street shortly after 2:30 p.m. The suspect, wearing a black hoodie and something covering his face, tried to enter through the lobby door, but the lobby of the credit union is no longer open and is a drive-thru only facility.
The suspect then saw a female customer also trying to enter the bank, so he showed her a handgun and took her purse. He ran from the scene.
Anyone with information regarding the incident or may have witnesses the robbery is asked to call the Alton Police Department at 618-463-3505.
