WASHINGTON PARK, Ill. (KMOV.com) – Police said three men robbed several victims and kidnapped another as they walked out of a Washington Park strip club late Tuesday night.
Police said three masked men armed with assault rifles and hand guns jumped out from behind bushes to rob a group customers as they walked out of Dollies Playhouse. Authorities said suspects then fired shots into the air before one victim jumped into the suspects’ truck and tried to get away.
“One of the victims had already jumped in the car. Suspects jumped in and took him along with them for a short ride,” said Detective James Mister with Washington Park Police.
According to police, the victim was held at gun point until suspects dropped him off unharmed at a nearby Church’s Chicken restaurant. Authorities said they have located the truck the suspects were driving but have not located the trailer that was attached to it.
“I think patrons at all the strip clubs should be aware,” Mister said. “These guys are looking at the fact that strip club customers might have large amounts of money on them.”
