Springfield Police Investigating Circle K Robbery
Springfield police are investigating an armed robbery at a Circle K gas station in the 2600-block of West Monroe. Police said just before 2:00 this morning, a suspect walked in, pulled a handgun, and threatened to shoot the clerk if the clerk refused to give him money.
The suspect is described as a white man, about 5'9", and 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a hooded sweatshirt backwards, with eye holes cut out of the hood.
Springfield police said the suspect's description is similar to a January 18 robbery at the Travelodge on South Sixth Street.
