sioux falls, sd

Sioux Falls police are looking for the suspect who held up a convenience store on South Sycamore Avenue with a large butcher knife Thursday morning.

They say a black man with dark complexion who is about 6 feet tall, weights 150 pounds showed the Casey's General Store clerk the weapon around 5:07 a.m.  He motioned for the clerk to open the till, took the cash drawer and put it in his backpack before leaving.

No one was injured.

Police say he was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, a red cap with a white emblem on the front and had a red bandana covering his face.  The backpack was black with a Nike emblem on it.

A black man armed with a butcher knife also robbed the store on November 11.  Police say he waved the knife, demanded money, grabbed the register drawer and put it in a backpack before leaving.  That suspect was about 6 feet tall and weighed between 160 and 175 pounds.  He was wearing a navy blue sweatshirt, black jeans, black shoes, and a red cloth covering the lower part of his face.

Anyone with information on either crime should call police.
