Davenport police are investigating a robbery reported this afternoon at Crescent Cleaners, 1301 Harrison St.

A man carrying a blue bag entered the store at 1:30 p.m., displayed a handgun and demanded the clerk turn over all the cash in the register. The clerk was then locked in the bathroom as the man fled eastward from the store.

The suspect is described as 6-foot-2 with a slim build, wearing all-dark clothing and carrying a blue bag. Anyone with information is asked to call the Davenport Police Department at 563-326-7979.

If the clerk was locked in the restroom how did they know what direction the guy headed?

Cheryl - Do you really think that at 1:30 in the afternoon at 13th and Harrison the clerk was the only person around to see what direction someone left the store??? Anyone going by could have see someone leaving the store and going east.

Of course he was a "minority" look at the area...its covered with "minority"

Don't bathroom doors usually lock from the inside?

I thought that was odd too. But, I know some of them do lock from the outside too because some places make you ask an attendant for a key.

he may have blocked the door with something big.

Why does it matter if it was a minority or not? A man robbed the place. His race has no importance other than maybe to help identify him. I hope the clerk who was working is ok. I can only imagine the terror he or she must have felt.

You got to be kidding me? No description means it was a minority right? You people be killing me. Really! I hear ya! Loud and clear.

It's safe to assume he's a minority because the press always bends over backwards to mention the fact when it's a white person attempting the crime. Therefore, no mention = ethnic-originated crime.

I think it's the other way around

With a description like this I'm sure he will be behind bars before morning! Another politically correct description. I wonder if that means the robber was a minority...hmmm? I could be wrong but by judging similar descriptions posted in this paper I doubt it.
