SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) — Sioux City Police are searching for a man who is considered armed and dangerous after a robbery on Monday.
According to a release from the Sioux City Police Department (SCPD), officers responded to a report of a robbery that took place at a gas station on the 4100 block of Floyd Boulevard at 5 p.m.
The robbery victim told police she was getting gas when a light blue Toyota Camry pulled up next to her. A man got out of the passenger side of the Toyota with a gun, and he demanded that she give him all her belongings as he came toward her.
The release stated the victim initially struggled with the man until he became more aggressive, then he got back into the Toyota and left. At the time, he was seen heading north on Floyd Boulevard. It was specified that the woman was not injured during the robbery.

While he was there, the owner of the property confronted the people in the Toyota, and the man in the passenger seat shot at the owner.
