For the second time in about as many weeks, masked gunmen robbed a Central Peoria gas station.
About 3:30 a.m. Tuesday, two males entered Circle K, 2416 N. University St., and demanded money from the clerk.
One of the males, armed with two guns, ordered a lone customer to lie face down on the floor while he yanked the victim’s wallet out of his pocket, reports stated. The other robber, also armed, turned his attention on the clerk, stealing an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register.
Witnesses reported seeing the men run south on University toward MacQueen Avenue after the robbery.
On Jan. 26, three men robbed the same gas station, pilfering cigarettes and taking money from the safe.

A South Peoria man was arrested after a gunfight at a gas station late Christmas Day.
Tuison D. Chalk, 24, of 1515 W. Widenham St. was arrested on weapons charges following the fight, which resulted in no injuries, at Circle K gas station, 2416 N. University St.
Several shots were fired inside the gas station about 11:50 p.m. before the large group of men fled in several different directions, according to police reports.
Witnesses told police one man fled on foot northbound on University, several fled southbound in a car and several others fled southbound on foot.
Minutes later, police were dispatched to the 1000 block of East Thrush Avenue, three blocks south of the gas station, on reports of several more shots fired. Chalk was arrested there and booked on charges of unlawful use of a weapon, aggravated discharge of a firearm and not having a valid firearm owner’s identification card.
An Avanti’s delivery driver was robbed by two men Saturday night in the East Bluff.
The 26-year-old man was sent to 1904 N. Indiana Ave. to drop off an order. When he arrived in the area about 7 p.m., he was unable to find the address, which was because it didn’t exist, police later told him.
He called the number given with the order and the man on the line told him to go to another address in the 1900 block of Indiana Avenue, according to a police report. He didn’t see anyone approach the door at the home, and while waiting by his car, two men came from behind the residence and pointed a gun at him. One said, “Give me what you got,” the report stated.
The delivery man gave them an unknown amount of money from his pocket, and they also took money from inside his car, the report stated. Then, they ran east in an alley east of Nebraska Avenue.
Its just another typical day in Peoria. And still the media and new papers refuse to acknowledge that Peoria has a major Nigger problem.
A 50-year-old man was beaten and robbed Saturday evening while walking through the shuttered Harrison Homes.
The victim told police he was walking near the housing complex about 6:30 p.m., when he was approached by five men. One asked him for money, and when he replied he had none they began kicking and punching him, according to a Peoria police report.
The attackers stole his wallet, containing an undisclosed amount of money, his cell phone and his keys. One of the robbers attempted to snatch the man’s boot, but was unsuccessful.
The attack left the man, however, with a broken ankle, and he had to drag himself to a nearby bar to call for help, according to the report. The victim was treated at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center for the broken ankle and released.
He could not give a description of the young men, except that they wore “bling,” the report stated.
No arrests had been made as of Sunday night.
Nigger Peoria Police Officer Clayton Glasper Put on Paid Leave for Allegedly Fondling a Women While on Duty
A 20-year veteran of the Peoria Police Department has been placed on administrative leave.
An investigation into allegations Clayton Glasper, 44, a patrol officer, inappropriately fondled a woman while on duty led to the decision, effective Nov. 16.
Not much else is known about the incident, including when he will return to duty.
Police and city officials declined to comment Wednesday, saying it was a personnel matter, therefore confidential.
Sources within the Police Department said the allegations may merit criminal charges, which could come in the form of an indictment. The next Peoria County grand jury meets Tuesday.
It’s common for officers to be placed on administrative leave while an investigation, either internal or criminal, is being conducted. The police chief determines whether the leave is paid or unpaid. In Glasper’s case, it is paid.
A juvenile court judge has moved the case of a 13-year-old boy accused of participating in the Oct. 21 armed robbery of the Downtown 66 gas station to adult court.
Peoria County Judge Chris Fredericksen ruled that Shyeim Chapai, of 241 Hancock, would be tried as an adult after a hearing Monday afternoon in the juvenile division of Peoria County Circuit Court.
Within a day of the ruling, a Peoria County grand jury indicted Chapai on a charge of armed robbery. He will be arraigned Thursday. Bond was set at $150,000.
Assistant State’s Attorney Ken Wilhelm argued the case should be moved to adult court, which means Chapai would face up to 30 years in prison if convicted. Had he remained in juvenile court, the case would have remained sealed, and any sentence would have ended when he turned 21.
The prosecutor showed the judge a video taken the night of the robbery. Chapai is allegedly seen walking into the station, pointing a handgun at the clerk and demanding money. Another boy, Danarious J. Kelly, 16, of 510 NE Adams St., Apt. 55, allegedly ran behind the counter, beat on the cash register and got about $500 before fleeing.
Kelly had already been charged as an adult on the same charge. His age and the charges made his case an automatic transfer,
Chapai’s attorney Chandra Justice told Fredericksen the case should remain in juvenile court. She cited her client’s past mental health issues as well as his age and lack of criminal history as reasons he should remain in the juvenile division.
Police were tipped to the boys after the clerk said he recognized one of them, and a fingerprint recovered at the gas station matched the boy. When questioned, Chapai allegedly admitted his involvement. Police later recovered the unloaded handgun.
