Bar patrons robbed at gunpoint in Eastlake


A scary night for customers at Manny's Lounge at 35647 Vine Street.

Eastlake Police Officers say just before midnight on Monday March 3, a man entered the bar wearing a ski mask and gloves and waving a pistol.

The suspect demanded money from the patrons and the bars cash register.

The customers and barmaid complied and gave him an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect threatened the patrons and then had them lie on the floor, before fleeing out the front door. No one was hurt in the robbery.

Mentor Police K-9 assisted in following a track that the suspect had taken, but it appears that he entered a vehicle and fled the area. 

Eastlake Police are still continuing the investigation, but if anyone has any additional information please call the Eastlake Police Detective Bureau at 440-951-1400.
