Armed robbery at a Beloit ATM

Posted:

BELOIT (WKOW) -- Beloit police are looking for the man who forced his way into a woman's vehicle and threatened her with a handgun.

The incident happened at an ATM machine in the 400 block of Public Avenue around 6:30 Thursday evening.

The victim had gone to the drive-up ATM and was completing a cash withdrawal when she was approached by a black male on foot.

He ordered her to make another withdrawal and then stole cash from both transactions.  The suspect then ordered the victim to drive from the scene.  He exited at the intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and bushnell Street and fled on foot.

Attempts to track the man's footprints in the snow were unsuccessful.  The victim was not physically injured.

The suspect is described as a black male, about 5'4" tall and wearing dark clothing.

The suspect description and his actions are very similar to an armed robbery at the same ATM January 6th.

Investigators will be reviewing video surveillance today to see if it assists in identifying the suspect.

Anyone with information in regards to this crime and/or the January 6th incident is encouraged to call the Beloit Police Department at 364-6801 or Beloit Area Crime Stoppers at 362-7463.
