Robbery at Blockbuster Near Wing and Vail

A report of a male black with short hair approached the cashier at the
Blockbuster at 121 West Wing and demanded money while his hands were in
his pockets about 1:30 p.m. Thursday. The suspect, likely in his mid-20’s with hazel eyes and
short hair, was wearing a brown zip-up sweatshirt and dark jeans. He left
eastbound on foot from the Blockbuster store.

Triangle shapes in white were noted around the pocket area (pants or sweatshirt not specified). The dark pants were tan or brown pants. After the robbery he was apparently picked up by a taxi near the downtown Arlington Heights train station and taken to Town & Country Center at Arlington Heights Road and Palatine Road.
