Armed Robbery Suspect Gets Away – FMPD Needs Your Help!

The Fort Madison Police Department is requesting any information from the public regarding a robbery that took place over the weekend.

On Saturday October 7th, 2023 at 9:08 PM, Fort Madison officers and a K-9 unit responded to a robbery report at Dollar General, 429 Avenue H.  A lone male subject entered the store displaying a knife to the clerk and instructed her to open the register. He proceeded to remove cash from the drawer and fled on foot. No one was injured in the incident.

The initial response did not yield an arrest or immediately identify the suspect. He was described as a male, of medium height, smaller build wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, black sweatpants, black tennis shoes, and a blue facemask. Surveillance videos from the store and other sources are being analyzed by detectives. Further details are being withheld pending investigation.

The Fort Madison Police Department asks area residents and businesses to check their security camera video about the time of the robbery for any similar sightings.  Information can be submitted to:
