Suspect On The Loose After Armed Robbery In Kellogg, Clerk Pepper Sprayed

KELLOGG, IDAHO - A convenience store clerk is still shaken up after being pepper sprayed by a suspected robber.

Kellogg Police say around 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday a man walked into the Hill Street Conoco in Kellogg, Idaho and asked for cigarettes, then demanded money from the clerk. Once he got the money he allegedly dragged the female clerk outside. When she tried to get away he pepper-sprayed her in the face. The suspect took off on foot with the money. Police say the clerk only suffered minor exposure to the pepper-spray. Police say finding the man is going to be difficult because they weren't able to get a shot of him from the store's surveillance video.

The suspect is described as a Native American or Hispanic male between 6'0"-6'3" with salt and pepper hair pulled back into a pony tail and having a mustache and goatee.

Police say robberies are very rare in Kellogg. The owner of the Conoco store and five other gas stations in town says this is the first robbery he has had in the ten years he's been there. Police say it's been even longer than that.

"This is the first convenience store that's been robbed since I've been here since 1999," said Chief David Wuolle, Kellogg Police. "We did have a bank robbery three years ago in uptown Kellogg. That is a very good problem to have, very rare." 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kellogg Police Department at (208) 784-1131.
