Strong-arm robbery in Blooming Grove


BLOOMING GROVE (WKOW) -- A strong-arm robbery took place late Sunday night outside Bailey's Bar in the town of Blooming Grove.

Dane County Sheriff's deputies say a 51-year-old Sun Prairie man reported four individuals approached him in the parking lot as he was backing out of his parking stall.

The victim was told he had hit their car and they demanded money.  The man says he turned over $50-$60, but denied striking their vehicle.

The victim states one of the suspects punched him in the face and briefly lost consciousness.  His adult son arrived and took him home, where he then called to report the crime.

Minor injuries were sustained, but he did not require medical attention. 

Deputies are looking for anyone who may have witnessed the crime, or been inside the bar Sunday night.

Of the suspects, two are described as black males and a third was a black female.  The fourth suspect is unknown.

Anyone with information can contact the Dane County Sheriff's tip line at 608-284-6900.
