Three surveillance still images have been released by police, which show a side view, an oblique view, and a view with the offender standing and twisted to the right. The images apparently show a man wearing a dark hoodie, dark head and facial cover (possibly a dark Balaclava), dark over-the-wrist long gloves with a white logo, one white shoe and one dark-colored shoe. Police said he appears to be a white male about 5-foot-9 to 6-foot tall, holding a large knife. The offender was seen removing currency from the cash register. The gloves appear to be black work gloves, or sports, ski or snow mobile gloves.
The offender appears to be armed with a combat or fighting knife — possibly a black KA-BAR Tanto knife or similar knife. The KA-BAR Tanto knife is described by the manufacturer as a “thick pointed blade that’s good for penetration.” The knife blade of the Tanto knife is 8 inches, and the overall knife length is 12-7/8 inches.
Streamwood police urge anyone with information to call their investigations division at 630-736-3700 or leave an anonymous tip at 630-736-3719.
