SF Police: Attic Robbery 'Unusual'

SF Police: Attic Robbery 'Unusual'
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Sioux Falls police still need your help locating a man who robbed a local restaurant Saturday morning.

Around 9:30 a.m. Saturday, police say a man knocked on the back door of The Attic Bar & Grill near 41st Street and Sycamore Avenue. A female employee, who was counting Friday night's receipts, answered the door and was then tied up by the suspect as he stole the receipts, as well as money. And while authorities are still searching for the suspect, the nature of the crime strikes them as odd.

The Attic Bar & Grill isn't usually busy with traffic on a Saturday morning. In fact, the restaurant was closed when someone approached a back door entrance and a female employee answered.

"He came in and she was in the process of counting the money," Sioux Falls Police Public Information Officer Sam Clemens said. "He basically pushed her away into the office and then closed the door behind her. He ended up taking the money and left out the same back door he came in."

Clemens says there were other people working in The Attic at the time.

"There was at least two employees out front," Clemens said. "They had no idea anything had even happened. So, this happened pretty fast and pretty quiet out the back."

Clemens believes the suspect was in the establishment for no more than five minutes. But the actual time of the robbery is something that's pretty rare.

"I can't think that we've had any bars that have been robbed in the morning before," Clemens said. "I think a situation like this is pretty unusual."

While the suspect is still on the loose, Clemens says there are some leads they're working on including the possibility the suspect used to work at the restaurant or knew the restaurant's layout.

"We're certainly looking at trying to find who's responsible and then we'll start looking at what ties there were after the fact," Clemens said.

The suspect is described as a heavy-set white male who's 5'6". He was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and a black ski mask. The female employee received a minor injury that did not require medical care.

We contacted the manager at The Attic on Monday afternoon, but they declined to comment.
