May 21—The Kokomo Police Department are seeking the suspect in a reported armed robbery.
Around 3:30 p.m. Friday, KPD officers were dispatched to the 1800 block of N. Washington in reference to an armed robbery. Upon arrival, officers identified a female who reported she had been robbed at gunpoint while stepping out of her vehicle.
The suspect is described as a thin black male, who was wearing a black track suit, a durag and tennis shoes that were black with white markings.
