CLEAR LAKE | There appears to be no evidence of a crime related to a report of armed robbery Tuesday evening in Clear Lake, police say.

The Clear Lake Police Department received a report of armed robbery about 6:10 p.m. Tuesday in the 500 block of Seventh Avenue North, according to a news release from the department. 

Police along with Iowa State Patrol troopers and Cerro Gordo County Sheriff's deputies checked the surrounding neighborhood and conducted a preliminary investigation. Law enforcement determined  area residents were not at risk.

After a follow-up investigation Wednesday, the department said it was not able to corroborate a report of robbery occurring at the residence.

Police say the reporting party had a consensual conversation with a man who was invited into the home, according to a news release. After a brief conversation, police say the man was asked to leave, and complied with that request.  

The relationship between the reporting party and the man is unclear, police said. There was no theft, damage or injury, and no arrests were made. 

Police say the incident remains open and has been reclassified as suspicious activity instead of robbery. 

Anyone with information about the case should contact the Clear Lake Police Department at 641-357-2186.
