Authorities investigate armed robbery in Oshkosh

The Winnebago County Sheriff is providing new information about an armed robbery in the Town of Oshkosh that happened August 10. 

The robbery was reported around 5:30 p.m. at the Fox Convenience Gas Station on Jackson Street.

Authorities say the suspect entered the store through the front door, displayed a black handgun and demanded money from the duty clerk. The suspect then ran off heading south with an undisclosed amount of money. 

The suspect, described as a black male, kept his face covered wearing a Dallas Cowboys winter hat with eyeholes cut out.  During the robbery, the Sheriff's Office says the suspect pointed a semi auto handgun at the clerk.

While a vehicle was not seen or reported by witnesses, investigators believe it is possible the suspect is driving a silver sedan.  It is believed the suspect parked some distance from this location and walked to and from the scene of the robbery.  

The Sheriff's Office also says there was a different robbery on Saturday, August 4th at the Grand Central Station located at N Ballard Rd in Appleton. It was robbed in a similar manner, but the Sheriff's Office does not know if the incidents are connected. 

Anyone with information about this incident should contact Winnebago County Sheriff’s Detective Tyler Sleeter at 920-236-7377.
