G. B. Ludeovice Met by Two Masked
Men as He Leaven Ilouic in Kuri
Morning;. Gold Is Overlooked.
G. B. Ludeovice, proprietor of a sa
loon at Union avenue and East Clay
streets, carelessly counted several
hundred dollars out in small bills last
Saturday night in view of the patrons
of his place of business, declaring that
he Intended paying his license with the
money on. Monday, and as he left his
homo yesterday morning two masked
men shoved their guns in his face and
relieved him of $300.
The highwaymen did not trouble to
search Ludeovice, taking only the
pocketbook which he had exhibited
Saturday night, ' overlooking a purse
with ?110 in gold.
The robbery took place at 6:45 A. M..
Just as Ludeovice descended the steps
of his home at 229 East Eighth street,
on his way to work. Shortly before
he left his dog in the yard had howled
and barked as if at a stranger, and it
is then that the men are supposed to
have arrived. A braes of guns were
pointed at the saloonman. the money
was taken from his pocket and the men
disappeared, all in a few minutes. The
few words spoken by the highwaymen
Were in Italian.
A policeman who was in the saloon
Saturday night when the proprietor
flashed his money warned him that It
was a foolish thing to do. It is as
sumed by the police that one of the men
then in the saloon planned the robbery,
as it evidently was done by persons
familiar with the habits of Ludeovice
and who knew where he was in the
habit of keeping his money.
Detective Tichenor is investigating
the case, assisted by all the detectives
in the department.
The money was in $10 and $20 notes.
