Ligonier Township police responded to a report of an armed robbery at 2 a.m. June 29 at Bull's Tavern located on Route 30.
Police said it was reported that two males entered the tavern through a back doorway wearing hats and glasses. The two men had handguns and forced an employee to the floor while having another retrieve money from a register.
They then forced the second employee to follow them part way outside threatening to kill her if the police showed up. The employee was eventually forced to the ground before the men ran off in the direction of Rosary Acres.
The alleged actors were described as white males, believed to be taller than 5'8” both wearing long-sleeved clothing and jeans. One male was specifically wearing a grey sweatshirt with orange writing across the front. The taller of the two males had blue eyes and light-colored hair. The other male wore sunglasses and a bandana.
Ligonier Township Police Chief Mike Matrunics said they are actively investigating the case and asks anyone with information regarding this incident to call 724-238-5105.
