AUSTIN, Minn. – Police are looking for a teenage suspect in a possible assault and robbery.
The incident allegedly happened Friday afternoon in the alley behind Donker’s Hometown Appliance in Austin, near the 1100 block of 1st Avenue SW. A 20-year-old man says he was going to meet some friends when he ran into a 16-year-old male.
The teen allegedly punched the man and when the 20-year-old’s wallet fell to the ground, the teen reportedly took the money from the wallet and left the scene.
Police set up a perimeter in the area and brought in a K9 to track the suspect but could not locate him. Chief Brian Krueger says it’s possible the teen may have been picked up by someone.
As of Monday morning, law enforcement is still looking for the teenager on suspicion of assault and simple robbery.
