ST. CHARLES — Police are asking for the public's assistance in finding a man suspected of robbing another man at gunpoint the night of Sept. 11 in St. Charles.

Around 9:53 p.m. Sept. 11, police responded to the parking lot of Fox Run Apartments, 115 Walnut Dr., for a report of an armed robbery, according to a news release from the St. Charles Police Department. A 42-year-old man reported that another man had approached him while he was walking to his car. The alleged robber then demanded the other man's wallet while holding a silver semi-automatic handgun.
