This week Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for information about a robbery which occurred in the parking lot of Mr. Gyro’s restaurant which is located on Martin Luther King Drive in Springfield.

As he approached his vehicle, however, he was attacked by three black males who were in their early 20’s. Two of the suspects were wearing white t-shirts and the third had a blue t-shirt on. All three suspects were slightly injured as the victim defended himself.
