Washington County Sheriff's Office looking for armed robbery suspect

WASHINGTON COUNTY, Wis. (CB S 58) – The Washington County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help to find an armed robbery suspect.

Investigators say the crime happened in the 1600 block of Friess Lake Road in the Village of Richfield in late September when a 30-year-old Fond du Lac man was driving in the area and was approached by a pedestrian asking for directions to a local park.

The man told investigators that’s when the pedestrian pulled out a gun and demanded money.

The pedestrian was described as a white man, about 230 pounds, around 5’10-5’11 with a white beard and short white hair sticking out of a dark blue baseball hat. Police say the victim told them he wasn’t sure about eye color or shape because he blinked a lot.

Anyone who has seen the suspect or recognizes him is asked to call the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at 262-335-4420 or the Washington County Law Enforcement tip line at 1-800-232-0594.
