ST. LOUIS — Police are looking for three people, including a teenager, who robbed a parking lot attendant just south of downtown earlier this month.

Police said the robbery happened just after noon at a lot near the intersection of South Seventh Street and Lasalle Street on June 12.

Police said two of the three people walked up to the woman and the teenage suspect pointed a gun at her. The woman handed over some money and the two suspects ran off. A third suspect was parked nearby and drove off at the same time.

Police provided surveillance video that showed the three suspects in the area.

One of the suspects was wearing a unique hooded jacket. They said the jacket is red and black camo and the hood zips up into a mask.

The robbery happened at around the same time as a Cardinals home game when the lot is typically used for gameday parking.

Police said the suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.
