Police ask for help identifying suspect in Shell Gas Station assault


ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying and locating a woman who is a suspect in an assault.

Police said the incident happened on Friday, December 25 at 11:52 p.m.

Police said the victim, a 59-year-old woman, was working security at a Shell Gas Station at 721 North Tucker when the suspect entered without wearing a mask. The victim said the suspect became belligerent when she was told she needed to wear a mask inside of the business. The suspect then “pushed the victim as the suspect exited the store and began striking the victim with a closed fist. The suspect took the victim’s baton and then struck the victim, causing a concussion.”

Police said the suspect entered a red vehicle and fled the scene.

The suspect is described as a 6 feet 1 inch to 6 feet 2 inches tall black woman, weighing 190 to 200 pounds with long straight black hair. She was wearing a three quarters length coat, a dark shirt and black pants.

The investigation is ongoing. Police ask for anyone with information to call CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS (8477) or a 4th District Detective at 314-44-2500.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
