Racine police are searching for two suspects – one of whom wore a Halloween mask – who robbed The Farm restaurant at gunpoint and fired a shot when an employee didn’t move fast enough.
No one was injured during an armed robbery Friday of The Farm restaurant, 3810 Durand Avenue, but police say the suspects got away with an undisclosed amount of money.
Witnesses told police that two Hispanic males entered the restaurant and demanded cash from the registers. When employees didn’t move fast enough, one of the men fired a single shot from a silver handgun. Once the suspects had the money, they fled out the main doors of the restaurant in an unknown direction.
The suspects are described as about 5’5″ tall and weighing between 125 to 130 pounds. One of the men wore a black bandana with skulls on it and the other had on a white goalie mask similar to the character “Jason” in the Friday the 13th movies.
