An armed robber allegedly visited the Dragon Inn restaurant Saturday night and left with a pile of paperwork, according to police.
The Juneau Police Department learned Tuesday, three days after the robbery, that a 46-year-old Juneau resident was closing down the restaurant alone when a masked man came inside at 8:35 p.m., pointed a gun at her and whispered “Give me the money.”
Police said the victim shoved paperwork at the robber, ducked behind the counter and screamed for help, according to a police release issued Wednesday. The suspect then took the paperwork and left.
Police said no one was hurt and the suspect did not take any money.
On Wednesday, Lt. David Campbell told the Empire that a customer encouraged the victim to report the robbery to police.
The following is the description police have of the suspect: a male with a light complexion with a skinny build who is between 5’5” and 5’9” tall. He was seen wearing a dark ski mask with white near the center, a tan jacket and dark pants.
Campbell said suspect description is “not identical but close enough to raise some suspicion” that the robber is the same person who assaulted and tried to kidnap a woman in the Mendenhall Valley March 2. The suspect in that case was described as being between 5’7” and 5’9” tall, having a skinny build and wore a black ski mask with white around the mouth. The man from that incident, however, was described has having a dark complexion.
Campbell said in a phone interview that those incidents are being investigated as two separate cases at this point in time.
Police are asking anyone with information concerning about the robbery to contact them immediately at 586-0600.
