Police are looking for the person who threw fireworks at a store clerk in Sioux Falls.
Police say they were called to the BP Gas Station on West Russell Street just before 10:30. They say the employee of the gas station reported that a person entered the store carrying a modified firework device.
She told police that the person lit the device and threw it at her. They then fled the scene. At one point, police evacuated the Ramkota Hotel across the street from the gas station. They were also searching the area with a K-9 unit.
The suspect is described as being 6'0" to 6'3" tall weighing 200 lbs. At the time, the suspect was wearing a black sweatshirt, jeans and a black ski mask. If anyone has any information they are urged to call Sioux Falls Police or CrimeStoppers at 367-7007.
