A frightening experience for an employee at a Springs convenience store after police say she was forced into a bathroom by an armed robber.
The woman was working at a Diamond Shamrock on Platte and Circle late Monday night when the suspect, face concealed by a mask, entered the store and pointed his gun at her. He first demanded she open the register, then ordered her into the bathroom.
The suspect is described as a white male in his early-to-mid 30s, 5-foot-7 and 180 pounds. He was dressed in a green flannel hoodie and camo pants.
If you have any information that could lead police to the suspect, call the Colorado Springs Police Department at 444-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
