PEORIA, Ill. -- Peoria police are looking for a suspect in the Thursday night robbery of Twinz Fast Stop, 113 SW Perry Ave.

The employee on duty said she sold a few items to a black male wearing a black hat, dark shirt, safety glasses and work gloves at around 1:00 p.m.

The employee said the suspect then leapt onto the counter and reached into the cash register, taking an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing the scene.

A witness said he followed the fleeing suspect on foot and saw him get into a silver Buick in the Manpower parking lot. The witness said he was unable to get a license plate number.
