Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.
That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.
And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.
CALEDONIA – Police are searching for a robbery suspect who held a pregnant clerk at gunpoint Monday afternoon at Deli Food Express, 3100 6 Mile Rd.
The clerk told officers that a man walked into the store brandishing a gun and demanded cash from her, according to a press release by the Caledonia Police Department.
“While giving the robber an undisclosed amount of money, a customer entered the store, and the robber ordered the 38-year-old man to get on the ground,” the press release reads.
The suspect fled the scene on foot. An individual in a car followed the suspect. Officers responded to the scene and a perimeter was set up around a residence at Indian Trail and Lamberton Road. Officers with the Mount Pleasant Police Department and a K-9 officer from the City of Racine cleared the property, but the suspect was not found.
The suspect is described as a black male with a light complexion, and about five-foot eight-inches to five-foot ten-inches tall. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, a black cloth covering his face, baggy blue jeans, black gloves and white shoes.
If you have any information about this incident, please contact the Caledonia Police Department at (262)835-4423.
