The Normal Police Department is searching for a suspect in the alleged robbery of a delivery driver, according to an article by The Pantagraph.
This incident occurred on Tuesday, April 26 at approximately 6 p.m. At that point, the delivery driver just dropped off a food order near Northbrook Drive and Orlando Avenue. That is when the robbery suspect approached the delivery driver.
The robbery suspect allegedly claimed to have a firearm and demanded cash from the delivery driver. After taking a small amount of cash from the delivery driver, the robbery suspect escaped the scene on foot. The delivery driver did not sustain injury as a result of this incident.
While the authorities continue to search for this robbery suspect, it seems appropriate to review robbery and aggravated robbery offenses under Illinois law.
