Police are investigating a Wallingford restaurant robbery that happened early Tuesday.
About 2 a.m. a man broke glass in the front door of the restaurant, in the 1700 block of North 45th Street. He grabbed cash from the register once inside, but the business owner went downstairs to confront him.
Police said they got into a fight, and the suspect hit the owner over the head with a heavy jar. He ran away and remains at large despite a police dog attempt to track him.
The victim’s head injury is not considered life-threatening, police said.
Burglary detectives are investigation. A detailed suspect description was not released.
We hope the police are actually investigating this one.
