Armed Robbery at Elk Run Heights Convenience Store

Sheriff's deputies are on the hunt for a gunman who held up an Elk Run Heights convenience store Sunday night.

Deputies were called to the Kum and Go store on Lafayette Road in Elk Run Heights around 8pm.

They say two black men went into the store demanding money.

They then left the store and ran through the snow behind the store.

Black Hawk Co. Sheriff Tony Thompson says the pair were wearing all black, stand about 5'7"-5'9" and weigh 130-150 lbs.

He says anyone driving through the area - especially northbound on Gilbertville Road - who noticed people on foot or saw a parked car near that Kum and Go should call the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Department at (319) 291-2515.
