Starkville Police Department officials say theyâ€™re still looking for a male suspect in an alleged armed robbery which took place approximately 9:30 p.m. Sunday.
SPD Lt. Troy Outlaw said a female was robbed at gunpoint at Cadence Bank at Highway 12 and Spring Street when she was withdrawing money from an ATM.
Outlaw said the suspect pointed a gun in her side and demanded she give him the money she retrieved out of the machine.
The suspect allegedly took $300 and the victimâ€™s cell phone before fleeing on foot in the general direction of the Hampton Inn. Outlaw said SPD is in the process of subpoenaing the victimâ€™s phone records.
He said the victim described the subject as wearing a dark colored hoodie sweatshirt, but no other details were available.
â€śWeâ€™re trying to recover video coverage from any business around the area that might have had footage,â€ť Outlaw said.
Investigation into the incident is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call SPD at 662-323-4131 or Golden Triangle Crime Stoppers at 1-800-530-7151.
