Austin Police Chief Brian Krueger says it is believed the teen was involved in a Sunday night robbery at the Ankeny mini-mart at 1205 Oakland Place SE. Clerks told authorities that two light-skinned black teens with thin builds entered the store with their heads and faces covered and demanded money and store property. One suspect is described as a 5’8’’ tall male wearing glasses and the other suspect was a slightly shorter male who was carrying a black semi-automatic pistol.
Chief Krueger says they are still looking for the other suspect. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call 507-437-9400.
