Springfield Police are looking for help solving a robbery at a west side shaved ice stand.

Sangamon and Menard County Crimestoppers says two black men, both about 18, went to the Sno Bizz at Laurel and MacArthur and started to order. Another black man about the same age then entered the shack, held down the employee and demanded money. They all ran away westbound on Laurel.

Anyone with anonymous information leading to an arrest could be eligible for a one-thousand dollar reward. Call Sangamon and Menard County Crimestoppers at 788-8427, head to the Crimestoppers website or text message tips. Type TIP 672 plus a message and send to CRIMES.
