Cops seek robbery witness

From Post staff reports

Detectives with the Lebanon Police Department are looking for a possible witness or witnesses to a robbery at a local gas station that occurred last week.

According to police reports, a black male robbed the Swifty Gas Station around 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 18. The assailant reportedly slugged the gas attendant with a blunt object and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect left the scene on foot.

At the time of the robbery a woman with a small child in a white SUV-type vehicle had just asked for three dollars of gas when the robbery took place.

In all the excitement, the witness drove away before Lebanon police could get her statement.

The driver of the white SUV is urged to come in to the Lebanon Police Department and give a statement concerning the robbery.

Investigators urge if anyone knows this woman or has information about this case to call the Lebanon Police Department at 444-2323.
