Officers were called shortly after 10 p.m. about the hold-up at One Stop Liquors, 1401 Prairie St. in St. Charles, according to a statement from St. Charles police.

A masked male had entered through the northwest door, pulled out a black handgun and demanded cash, police said. He then ran west into the parking lot, where he got into a waiting car. The car drove off onto Prairie.

The suspect was described as a thin male standing about 5-foot-9, police said. He wore a dark jacket, a black mask and gray pants.

Police said he was “bowlegged with an unusual gait.”

Investigators released surveillance images showing the suspect inside the store as well as the car waiting for him outside. Anyone with information is asked to call police at (630) 377-4435.
