Police Search for Armed Robbers

Story by WBGZ Radio

The Madison County Sheriff's Department is looking for leads in an alleged robbery in Godfrey early this morning. At about 2:30am, a couple returning home from the Hollywood Casino were confronted by masked men who cut the victims off while driving near the intersection of Union School Road and Humbert Road.

At that point the suspects, described as two black males, armed with firearms, wearing hoodies and partial facemasks, exited their vehicle and demanded money. One shattered the driver's side window with a gun, striking the victim in the head with the gun. Madison County Sheriff's Department Captain Mike Dixon tells The Big Z there was apparently a shot fired during the incident in which the victims were able to flee.
