DIXON – A robber armed with a handgun who managed to cover up sufficiently so that police aren't sure of the gender took an undisclosed amount of cash from the clerk at Casey's around 2 this morning.

The robber was about 5 feet tall and wearing athletic pants with white stripping down the legs, a dark-colored sweatshirt or coat and hood, gloves, and some type of scarf or mask over most of his or her face, Dixon police said in a news release.

He or she fled the store at 1401 W. Fourth St. on foot. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 815-288-4411.
