MUNCIE, Ind. – City police are looking for a masked bandit who held up a southside liquor store shortly before noon Thursday.
The holdup was reported at 11:56 a.m. at the Save-On Liquor store at 1920 S. Madison St.
Muncie police Capt. Joe Todd said the robber pointed a handgun at a store clerk and demanded cash. No injuries were reported.
The robber was described as a “younger black male,” wearing a black T-shirt, long black shorts and a black and silver mask
The robbery occurred about 35 hours after two gunmen used a police-style baton to baton to smash a window at Muncie’s Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant, 838 E. McGalliard Road.
Those bandits entered the restaurant, which had closed for the night, and robbed a manager at gunpoint.
Todd said there was no immediate reason to suspect the robberies were connected.
Anyone with information on either crime should call the Muncie Police Department’s investigations division at 765-747-4867.
