Rockford Police searching for a man in connection with two armed robberies


Police have arrested two men and are searching for a third suspect in connection to four alleged armed robberies Thursday.

Investigators say the man with the shotgun was described as a light-skinned black male with a beard or goatee, who was wearing black clothing, black gloves and brown or tan boots.

Two employees reported to police a male had entered the store, displayed a black handgun left with cash.

Las Vegas police have released video footage of an armed man they said robbed a Strip casino Wednesday morning.

Officers responded to a second complaint on the 200 block of East Bloch Street, and were given a similar description.

Both suspects ran away from the crash, but one was later taken into custody and identified by the robbery victim as the suspect, police said. After police were called the victims told police that there was a camera installed outside the apartment that would have caught images of all three suspects.

Peel's Central Robbery Bureau is investigating. The 73-year-old victim had been approached by the suspects, who pushed him to the ground and robbed him at gunpoint.

A canine unit was on the scene, but was unable to locate any of the suspects.
