Crime advisory

At approximately 11 p.m. Tuesday, Normal Police responded to the 100 block of W. Phoenix Ave. (Constitution Trail behind the Normal Police Department) for a report of two strong armed robberies.

One male victim was struck in the face before the suspect took his wallet and cellphone.

The other victim had no injuries and a hat stolen.

A suspect was immediately located and placed under arrest.

An additional report of subjects asking for money on the trail was found to be unrelated and non-criminal.

Students and others are reminded Constitution Trail closes at dusk and to be aware of their surroundings at all times.
