Davenport Police Need Help In Finding Robber

Posted: Updated:

Police are looking for a man they say robbed a Davenport check cashing business and beat up the clerk.

Surveillance video from the scene this morning shows the suspect following the employee into Express Checking store on Division. 
Another angle shows him trying to take something from her hand, and when she pulls away, he punches her. The suspect took an unknown amount of money and ran away.
The victim was taken to the hospital. 
Police said while people can't prevent a robbery, there are things you can do when if it happens.

"Pay attention to detail," Rock Island Sheriff Jeff Boyd said. "Things that may not seem important to you, or matter now, are going to be very important later."

Police said getting a good look at the suspect is very important. Pay attention to details like scars and tattoos and remain calm.
Officials said if you think about these things then you may be surprised about your reaction if it happens.
