PEORIA, Ill. -- A woman was robbed at gunpoint Tuesday around 1 p.m. in the intersection of Nebraska and Bigelow.
Peoria police said the victim was at the 66 gas station on Sheridan and Main when an unknown man asked for a ride to Bigelow and Nebraska.
When she dropped him off there, another man jumped into the car, demanding money. The suspect then struck her multiple times with a handgun. That's when the victim gave up what money she had, and the suspect fled on foot.
The victim went back to the gas station to call police. An infant child in the victim's car was unharmed.
Police are still looking for the suspect. He's described as a black male in his teens with a thin build. He was wearing a blue hoodie with orange lettering on it.
