The Journal Times Online > Local News > Convenience store owner stops two robbers with own gunRACINE - A convenience store owner who was robbed earlier this month stopped two would-be-robbers before they even reached the service counter Friday afternoon when he pulled out a handgun.
Numan Pasqualine, the owner of Quick Market at 4303 16th St., said he saw two men approaching his store on the video surveillance camera.
“I thought there was something wrong,” he said. “They had their heads down, so you couldn’t see their masks.”
The men entered the Quick Market, and one of them waved a gun. Pasqualine said he grabbed his own gun from behind the counter. “I told him to get down twice,” he said.
The man, who was standing in the corner near the entrance, and the second suspect, who was already by the door, then fled the store and ran south on Indiana Street. They didn’t take anything from the store.
Racine police were called to the convenience store at 12:16 p.m.
Reports said this is the second time the Quick Market was robbed this month. On Feb. 3, just before 7 p.m. two masked men entered the store, one armed with a handgun and robbed it.
Pasqualine said Friday he is not sure if the men who tried to rob his store were the same men who took money from him earlier this month. “I’m not sure, since they had masks.”
