Crime Stoppers

Today Crime Stoppers and the Rockford Police Department need you help to identify the white male subject responsible for a strong armed robbery which took place at approximately 7:20 pm on Wednesday March 5th, in the parking lot of this Hilander Grocery Store located at 1715 Rural Street in Rockford, Illinois.

The pictures you are now viewing show the suspect as he enters the Hilander Store just prior to the crime. A short time later, he confronted a 69 year old female in the parking lot, grabbed her purse, and fled the scene in a gold or tan mid sized car.

The suspect is a white male in his 20's, 6'2" tall, with a medium build. He was wearing a green baseball hat, black jacket, black short and green or khaki colored jeans. Thankfully the 69 year old victim was not injured, but all to often purse snatching incidents do result in serious injuries to victims.

Let's get this criminal identified before he hurts somebody. If you have information call Crime Stoppers at 963-7867 or 1-888-769-Stop. When you call Crime Stoppers we never ask your name, we don't have caller ID, and we will pay a cash reward for information which solves the crime or leads to the arrest of a criminal."
