Robbery on South Durkin Drive

Crime Stoppers is seeking help from the public to help solve an early morning robbery on April 30th to a person at the 200 block of South Durkin Drive in Springfield. The victim reported he was walking his dog, before dawn, when he was confronted by a black male subject 25-30 years of age who stood approximately 6 feet tall and weighed 225 pounds. After the suspect confronted the victim, an altercation occurred between the two and the victim received a non life threatening stab wound to the shoulder. A brown leather wallet was stolen in the robbery.
