Northside La Crosse bar robbed, suspects escape



Customer had just left when hold up occurred

La Crosse police are investigating a Sunday morning robbery that took place at George Street Pub. A bartender said she came up from the basement at around 11:30 and two black males in dark clothing were next to the bar. One man demanded “all the money” and the other man knocked over a few stools.

No one was injured in the incident, and no weapon was shown.
