An Iowa City convenience store clerk is recovering from injuries after being kidnapped and robbed. Iowa City Police say they’re still looking for a man who walked into the Gasby’s Conoco gas station on South Gilbert Street Sunday morning, displayed a gun and demanded cash.
The suspect then kidnapped the clerk and stole her SUV. The incident occurred around 6:30 a.m. The cashier fought with the man in the SUV before she was pushed out of her moving vehicle a few blocks away from the store. Police say she was treated for minor injuries.
The suspect — described as a black man, 5’8″, 200 pounds — remains at large. He was driving the cashier’s blue 1999 Ford Explorer with Iowa license plates 860 WJY.
