I want to just bring it to everyone's attention unfortunately last night three thugs robbed a employee of the Tremont Tap House at gunpoint in their rear parking lot.
Two African American and one Caucasian jumped out of a parked van that was waiting for the employee when he retrieved something from his parked car. One had a pistol and the other was holding a Ak-47.
They never went inside the tavern. They took the employee's cash, then pistol whipped him once for not telling them he had $60.00 in cash on him.
This was another crime of opportunity, Tremont is safe, but I wanted people to know. This is why I was up late last night. Only a partial license number was seen and given to the police, they sped off going east on Starkweather, more than likely to I-490 and gone.
Just be aware of your surroundings, this even happens in the suburbs. I spoke with the owner, I was listening to the police scanner on Cleveland.com and could not believe what I heard. Chris the owner wanted to make sure a police report was taken because he does not want this to re-occur in Tremont.
The thugs was more than likely watching the place and hit on Sunday night/ Monday morning. If they went inside they would have been on video.
