1101 North Sherman Ave. (Capitol Petro)


     The MPD arrested a woman for strong-armed robbery with a threat of force following a disturbance last evening that left a mess inside Capitol Petro, 1101 N. Sherman Ave.
      A clerk said the suspect claimed to have a gun, threatened to beat up customers, while loudly announcing, "I'm robbing this place, I'll shoot you!"
      The victim said Evelyn N. Stalling, age 34, ran through the store knocking things off shelves, tipping over displays, while putting merchandise into a bag.
      At one point, the victim says the suspect attempted to take a case of beer from a customer, but that effort failed.
     The suspect fled the store, but was still in the area as officers arrived to make an arrest.
     They observed many food items and other merchandise scattered about the store following the robbery.
