White Castle armed robbery suspect

ST. LOUIS – Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating a man who robbed a south St. Louis White Castle last month.

According to Officer Michelle Woodling, a spokeswoman for the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, the robbery occurred December 22 around 5:40 p.m. in the 4500 block of S. Kingshighway Boulevard.

Woodling said the suspect walked into the White Castle, approached the counter, and began to place an order. The suspect then pulled out a small revolver and jumped the counter. He forced the cashiers to open their registers and he stole an undisclosed amount of cash.

No one was injured in the robbery.

Police described the suspect as an African-American man with a medium complexion, standing 5’3″ to 5’5″ tall, weighing between 130 and 150 pounds, and appearing to be 25 to 35 years of age. He was missing teeth in the top right part of his mouth. The suspect was wearing a grey NorthFace coat with a fur outlined hood, green pants, and dark gloves.

Anyone with information on the suspect’s identity is asked to contact CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS.

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.

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.
