Cops use stun gun on armed robber after short chase in Manitowoc

by

MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - A 23 year old Manitowoc man was caught by Manitowoc police Sunday night shortly after he allegedly robbed a southwest side business.  

Authorities say a male entered the Mobil Gas Station on Calumet Avenue around 8:30pm.  

The cashier told police that the suspect bought a soda, then began asking questions about how much money was in the cash register.  

He then pulled out a handgun, asked for all the money and fled on foot.  

Police saw him running a couple blocks away  and ordered him to stop.

The man was tased, taken into custody and is facing a charge of armed robbery.  

Authorities recovered the stolen money as well as a bb/pellet handgun.
