Fremont business robbed at gunpoint

By master · August 28th, 2009 · 4 Comments

Police say a man walked into a business in the 600 block of N 34th St. just before 10 p.m last night and demanded money. “The employee did not believe the suspect was serious and told him no,” the police report explains. “The suspect then produced a silver handgun from his waistband.” The man robbed the store and escaped with the cash before police arrived. Fortunately, there were no injuries. As is customary, police didn’t reveal which business was robbed. But PCC, Cold Stone Creamery and Peet’s Coffee are all on the block, and an employee at Peet’s tells us it wasn’t them.

    Cold Stone employees need to google up “What are you going to do now, shoot us?” for future reference.
