Des Moines police are looking for a suspect who allegedly robbed a woman at knife-point.

A 24-year-old woman told officers she was walking down University Wednesday around noon, when a man stopped her in the 1700 block, showed a knife, and demanded cash.

She told him she didn’t have any money, just an ATM card.

Police say the suspect then ordered her to walk with him to a gas station up the road and withdraw money, and threatened to stab her if she didn’t cooperate.

The victim told police the suspect waited outside while she put the money on a “Green Dot” card, once he had it he took off, and she walked back home and called police.

No arrests have been reported.
