Police are looking for suspects after a person was robbed at gunpoint Wednesday morning.

It happened around 7:15 a.m. at the Topeka Livestock Auction in the 600 block of East Lake in St LaGrange County.

Police believe he took off in a navy blue, mid 90's Ford Ranger pick-up truck with a woman. The truck was last seen leaving Topeka Eastbound on County Road 700 south in a reckless manner, passing a number of vehicles.

The suspect is described as a white man, about five feet, four inches tall, between 20 and 30 years old. He has a slender build and was last seen wearing dark-colored clothes.

The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information should call police at 260-463-7491.
