Another Billings Business Robbed By Suspect with Bat
For the second time in less than a week, Billings Police are investigating a robbery at a local business involving a baseball bat.
According to the post on the @BillingsPD Twitter page, Billings Police officers responded to 729 S. 29th Street West at 2:49 am Saturday morning (5/14) for a reported robbery.
In the social media post, BPD Sgt. Peterson said the suspect is described as a Hispanic or Native American male who was approximately 5' 5" tall, 130 lbs. and wearing all black.
Billings Police say the man threatened an employee at a nearby business with a baseball bat but left without any money.
No further details about the robbery were available when this article was published.
Earlier this week, a convenience store on Grand Avenue was robbed in a similar fashion when Billings Police say a Hispanic man wearing a black hoodie threatened employees of the Holiday gas station with a bat.
In that robbery, the suspect was reported to be 5' 7" tall and wearing a black hoodie, black beanie, and light-colored pants.
This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
