Creekside Market in Iowa City Robbed // Have You Seen This Guy?

Late last night when I was struggling to fall asleep for the second night in a row, a cashier at one of Iowa City's gas stations was the victim of an armed robbery:
According to the victim, a black male entered the store, jumped up and over the counter and grabbed the victim from behind in a choke hold. He then held a knife against her neck and demanded she empty the money out of the cash register. The victim complied and the male fled the scene in an unknown direction with an undisclosed amount of money. The victim received minor injuries and was treated by paramedics at the scene.

The suspect was described as a black male, approximately 5'10", 180 pounds, wearing a light-colored plaid jacket with a blue shirt or mask covering his face.

Check out the attached video and see if you recognize the guy in this video. It's difficult to make out the features of this robber, what with his hooded jacket and everything. You can earn a reward of up to $1,000 if your tip leads to his arrest. You can contact the Iowa City Area CrimeStoppers at 358-8477.
