Police still are investigating the armed robbery of a local restaurant.
At about 8:40 p.m. Monday, two men armed with guns robbed the Spotted Cow at 718 W. Glen Ave. and escaped on foot with an undetermined amount of cash.
A description of the robbers was not available from police Monday night.
No one in the restaurant was injured. Police have not made any arrests.
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.
That crime, like Tuesday’s, remains unsolved and comes on the heels of more than two dozen similar robberies plaguing the city since the end of December.
When the police do something about these nigger gangs?
Answer=Never. Stand up whitey, join the struggle today.
