LaPorte Police Investigating Armed Robbery


LaPorte Police are investigating an armed robbery. It occurred just before 10 p.m. Sunday at Mae’s Mart at 3204 Monroe Street.

Investigators say a white man came into the store by himself and went into the restroom. He came out, started to leave, turned back around, confronted the store clerk at knifepoint and demanded the contents of the cash register.

A struggle ensued as the robber started to leave the store. The 30-year-old male clerk sustained a one-inch cut to his left hand. A coworker took him to IU Health LaPorte Hospital for treatment.

The robber got away in a small light blue or silver vehicle.
