Police ask for help identifying robbery suspect

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis police are asking for help identifying a man who robbed a woman while trying to steal her vehicle last month.

Police say a 38-year-old woman was pumping gas at the Shell gas station at the intersection of South Broadway and Davis at 1:55 p.m. Feb. 1 when a man hopped into her vehicle and started to drive away.

The woman jumped in her vehicle on the passenger side in an attempt to stop the suspect. She ordered him to stop, but he kept driving, and hit a vehicle driven by a 42-year-old woman, which was stopped in the westbound lane of Davis.

Police say the man jumped out of the vehicle and ran from the scene. Nobody was injured.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian man who looks to be between 20 and 25-years-old with dark hair, standing approximately 5'10" tall, and weighing around 135 pounds.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the man is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS.
