On May 29, 2016 at approximately 11:30 p.m., Evasnville Police say a female victim stated she was shopping at the CVS Pharmacy located at 2020 E. Morgan Avenue, and as she was leaving a white male subject approached her and asked if she could give him a ride to the area of W. Louisiana Street and Read Street. The white male suspect reportedly helped the victim put her items in her car and they left. When the victim stopped at the stop sign at W. Louisiana Street and Read Street, police say the white male suspect pulled out a hunting style knife and put it to her throat and demanded her purse and fled on foot southbound on Read Street.

Police describe the suspect as an approximately (18) year old white male with brown hair. At the time of the robbery he was wearing a black Ohio State hoodie, blue jeans and was wearing a black ball cap.
