Tuesday, December 16, 2014
—Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart is asking for the public’s help to identify a man who robbed a gas station in unincorporated Palatine and may also have been involved in other similar robberies in the area.
At approximately 2 a.m. on Monday, Cook County Sheriff’s Police were notified of an armed robbery in the 1400 block of N. Quentin Road. A man dressed in a red jacket and a red cap walked up to the counter of the gas station, displayed a handgun and demanded money.
The offender was handed cash. He also took menthol cigarettes and then left the gas station.
The offender is described as male, black with a medium build and approximately 5-feet 8-inches to 5-feet 10-inches tall. He wore a red jacket, red cap, a gray scarf/mask, gloves and dark pants.
The offender is believed to be involved in an attempted armed robbery that occurred earlier that morning at a Schaumburg gas station. He may also be connected to armed robberies that occurred in Park Ridge and Prospect Heights.
Sheriff Dart asks anyone with information to call Sheriff’s Police at 708-865-4896.
