Alton Police are investigating a pair of armed robberies that have taken place over the past couple of weeks. In both cases, the incidents happened in Upper Alton. One happened at a Laundromat, and victimized a 69-year-old man. In that incident, the suspect produced a knife, but the victim fought back. The victim sustained a large laceration about his facial area, but the victim's wallet was stolen.
Alton Police Chief Scott Waldrup says they are putting this information out to the public in hopes of identifying the suspect.
