After a patron from the Taqueria Arandas Restaurant, 1501 Prospect St., found out her favorite eatery was robbed, she decided to help the business recover the $300 it lost during the robbery.

Naomi Marie rallied the troops via Facebook to come help the restaurant by booking a table for 15 people from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 14 to help the business recoup the money it lost. She started the event because “Mexican food = awesome. Stealing = not awesome,” she wrote on the Facebook page. She calls it “The ‘Sorry you guys got robbed!’ Dinner.”

“This restaurant is one of my personal Racine favorites,” Naomi wrote. “They got robbed at gunpoint on Sunday, a few hours after a few friends and I had enjoyed lunch.”

If more people want to get involved, she said she would call the restaurant to add more to the reservation if needed.

“How about instead of getting scared about our neighborhoods, we just make it a point to love our neighbors a little more?” She wrote. “Don’t be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

The first described as man that is between five-foot six-inches and five-foot eight-inches tall, and about 160 pounds. The second suspect is described as a black man, about five-foot seven-inches tall, and about 160 pounds. Both men wore masks over their faces.
