COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (KMOV.com) – A suspect is on the loose after two people were robbed while inside a vehicle on the Applebee’s parking lot in Collinsville.

The victims told police they were seated inside their vehicle, which was parked in the rear parking lot, when they saw the suspect walking from the nearby Burger King around 10:40 p.m. Saturday. The suspect then approached their vehicle, tapped on the window with a black handgun and demanded they roll it down.

The victims rolled down the window and the suspect demanded they give them all of their possessions, which they complied. The victims said the suspect took a men's wallet with about $45 cash, identification and gift cards, along with a cell phone.

Anyone with information regarding the armed robbery is asked to contact Lt. Charles Mackin at 618-344-2131 ext. 5130 or CrimeStoppers at 866-371-8477
