Wednesday, June 7, 2006

CARUTHERSVILLE -- Police are searching for a man who allegedly robbed a Caruthersville man and his friend at gunpoint early today.

About 1 a.m., the Caruthersville Police Department was dispatched to a residence on Washington Street in Caruthersville in reference to an armed robbery that reportedly occurred in an apartment on Fourth Street.

A 26-year-old man reported he was at his residence with a friend when an unknown male came to the home to use the phone. After being allowed inside to use the phone, the suspect produced a large caliber handgun.

While inside the residence, the suspect used force to take a large amount of money from both individuals, a cell phone and a detachable face from a car CD player. The suspect later forced the men into the bathroom before finally fleeing the apartment on foot.

The suspect was described as a tall, slender black male between 20 and 25 and was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, tan-colored pants and a yellow baseball cap. No arrests have been made as the investigation continues by the Caruthersville Police Department.
