Racine police are asking for the public’s help finding the suspect(s) who robbed three businesses Friday in the city, at least one of which was at gunpoint.
Police were first called around 10:15 a.m. Friday to the Family Dollar store at 3701 Durand Avenue for a report of a robbery. Witnesses say a black male entered the store and demanded money, getting away with an undisclosed amount of money.
A weapon was not displayed but was implied, according to our media partners at Racine Uncovered.
Shortly after 12:30 p.m. police were called to a second Family Dollar, 3919 Washington Avenue, for a report of an armed robbery. During this incident, a black male wearing a black hoodie displayed a handgun and demanded cash.
The suspect fled on foot in an unknown direction.
Officers were also called around 5 p.m. to Bohl Automotive, 2525 Douglas Avenue, for a report of a robbery. The male suspect was described as black, around 5’9″ and 200 pounds, with a beard and wearing a black hoodie, according to a separate story on Racine Uncovered.
Witnesses say they didn’t see a weapon, but the man indicated he had one. He also fled on foot in an unknown direction with an undisclosed amount of cash.
