Authorities are still searching for the man who held up a local eatery Friday night.

According to a Marshalltown Police Department report issued early Saturday morning, at about 9:05 p.m. Friday, an armed robbery occurred at the North 3rd Avenue Dairy Queen.

Shortly after business hours, a white male suspect approached the front customer window and contacted an employee who was still inside the business. At some point, the suspect pointed a firearm at the employee and demanded money, fleeing the scene shortly after. The employee was not injured during the incident.

The MPD would not provide any more details about the suspect, for fear it might jeopardize the investigation, which was still ongoing.

Those with any information regarding the robbery are urged to call the MPD at (641) 754-5725. They can also provide a tip anonymously through the Marshall County Crime Stoppers program by calling (641) 753-1234, or texting the word “marshall” to CRIMES (274637), or online at
