Mexico is requesting assistance in the identification of a robbery suspect.

On Tuesday, May 4, 2021 at 2:21 pm, we were called to the 2700 block of S Clark regarding a robbery. We learned that a male entered a business in that location, pointed a gun at an employee, and demanded money. The suspect eventually left with about $300 in cash. The suspect is described as being either bi-racial o

r a white male with a dark complexion. He is slightly over 6’0” tall with a slim build. He was clean-shaven and wearing a dark jacket, a dark baseball cap, blue jeans, and large dark sunglasses. He was also possibly seen in the area with a black umbrella. There were no injuries from the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact CRIMESTOPPERS at (800) 392-TIPS or (800) 392-8477 or Mexico Public Safety at (573) 473-5800 or (573) 581-2100.
