A 56-year old Gillette woman is in police custody after she used a knife to rob a grocery store in Shawano.
It all happened just before 6:00 PM Friday night. A female dressed in all black and wearing a black mask entered Guerrero Grocery Store on Main Street in Shawano and demanded money from the store owner.
The 59-year old woman who owns the store sustained minor injuries as a result of the robbery. The robbery suspect threw her to the ground during the robbery. The store owner did not seek medical attention.
The robbery suspect fled the store with an undetermined amount of money. Shawano Police Officers apprehended the suspect four blocks away just two minutes after she fled the scene. She was taken into custody for armed robbery and battery.
Further information is expected to be released Monday. The incident is still under investigation.
