There had been a rash of robberies in our area a few months ago and we wondered what was happening to the Northland.  Then, they calmed a bit and now not one, but two robberies have happened in two Wisconsin towns.  Police are asking for your help.

In SUPERIOR, they are searching for a suspect in an armed robbery that happened Monday night at Krist Oil on East 2nd Street.  According to WDIO.com, a man entered the store at 10pm with a gun and demanded money.

The clerk was just closing for the night and described the suspect as a white male with a stocky build and blue-grey eyes.  Two good Samaritans who were driving by at the time of the robbery did stop to help.  One went in to help the clerk, the other chased the suspect into the nearby residential neighbor and lost him.

If you have information to share with the Police, please call 715.395.7468.
