Armed Robbery

The Sioux Falls Police Department was dispatched to a holdup/duress alarm at a business in southwest Sioux Falls at 8:18 p.m. on Thursday, February 23, 2017. Arriving officers reported that business appeared normal when they arrived. The officers then contacted employees and were told the business had been robbed.

The employees reported a white man entered the business and said he was from their corporate office. The man then partially displayed a black handgun to an employee and demanded to be escorted to the office safe. The employee complied with the suspect and escorted him to the office area. The suspect then left the business with an undetermined amount of money and was believed to have left in an unknown model, white pickup.
