An employee of the City Cafe on West Broad Street says she was robbed as she was closing the business last weekend.
Danielle Swanson told Sergeant Joey Jones of the Smithville Police Department that two men took a money bag from her containing $1,000.
Sergeant Jones' report states that " On Saturday, September 20th at about 12:55 a.m. I was dispatched to the City Café on a robbery complaint. Arriving at 1:04 a.m., I made contact with Danielle Swanson who advised me that she was robbed. She went on to say that around 11:00 p.m. while closing the restaurant, she had gone over to the trash cans to throw away some trash and as she was walking to her car, parked on the other side of the parking lot, someone shoved her down from the back. Swanson said she could not tell who it was but they (two men) had sleeveless shirts and khaki shorts. Both were about 20 years of age and tall, approximately six feet tall, and thin. One had a beard and blond hair and the other had dark hair but no facial hair. She advised me that she had never seen them before. She then stated that they had to have come from around the trees behind the trash cans to the north of the building. That's the only place that she said they could have been hiding. Then she stated that one of the guys took her purse and threw out the contents and then they got the money bag containing the daily receipts. They then went across the parking lot and got into a white suburban and took off heading westbound. Swanson then stated that she ran over to her sister's house and called her step-father who said that when he was coming off of Dry Creek Road onto West Broad Street enroute to the restaurant, he saw a white suburban turning down Dry Creek Road, and going fast."
Swanson stated that the only thing taken was the money bag.
No arrests have been made.
