Police seek help in latest Alexandria armed robbery

Posted: Updated:

The Alexandria Police Department is investigating an armed robbery which took place late Tuesday night at a Super America.

Officers responded to a 911 call just before midnight of a robbery that had taken place. According to the preliminary investigation, the male suspect entered the store holding a handgun and forced the clerk to hand over money from the cash register.

He then forced her into a back store room where he bound her hands and ankles before exiting through the front doors. After leaving the store, the suspect spotted a motorist in their vehicle just outside the front doors. The suspect displayed his handgun and demanded the motorist's wallet.

Officers were able to track the suspect for a short distance and determined that he got into a vehicle that picked him up and left the area. Investigators believe the robbery is related to two other recent robberies in Alexandria.

Anyone with additional information are urged to contact the Alexandria Police Department at 320-763-6631
