Kincaid Police Chief Dwayne Wheeler is seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect that committed an armed robbery. According to Wheeler, the armed robbery took place at the American Legion in Kincaid on Saturday, March 26th at 8:14 p.m.

 

Wheeler stated the victim attended a gathering there that night and was walking toward her car to drop off some items and was texting on her cell phone, when the suspect came up from behind her and put her in a headlock. The suspect then held the victim at knifepoint, and demanded money and jewelry. Wheeler reported the woman sustained scratches on her neck during the incident.

 

Wheeler noted that a vehicle pulled up at a stop sign intersection which startled the suspect and he ran eastbound toward Kincaid Park. The suspect is about 6’0” tall with a skinny build, and is about in his middle 20’s. He was last seen wearing a camouflage jacket, camouflage hat, and blue jeans.

 

Chief Wheeler told Regional Radio News that there have been leads coming in and the investigation is still ongoing. If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of the suspect, you are to call the Kincaid Police Department at 217-237-5568.
