The Boone County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the help of the public in identifying a robbery suspect.
A 27 year old Everton woman reported an unidentified man hit her in the head and stole her purse, phone, jewelry, and other items while she was in the driveway of her residence about 10 pm on June 18th. According to the woman, she was preparing to leave the residence and had unlocked her car when the man approached. He is described as a white male of medium or slight build and was wearing a dark ball cap, white t-shirt, blue jeans and white tennis shoes. The man fled on foot from the residence, which is on Highway 206 between Everton and Highway 65.
Sheriff Hickman said these types of crimes are very unusual for our area and the investigation is a priority for his department. Sheriff Hickman said investigators were sending physical evidence from the scene to the State Crime Lab for analysis, but asked that anyone who had information relevant to the investigation contact the Sheriff’s Department.
