Lover’s Playground robbed at gunpoint Monday



A clerk at adult store Lover’s Playground was held at gunpoint by two men wearing black ski masks early Monday morning, according to police. 

Bloomington Police Department Capt. Ryan Pedigo said officers responded to a robbery at the store, previously known as College Adult Books, at 1013 N. College Ave. around 1:00 a.m. Monday

The clerk told officers that two men wearing dark clothes and black ski masks entered the store and one of them had a handgun. The men reportedly pointed the handgun at the clerk and demanded he give them the money in the register. The clerk gave the men the money, Pedigo said.

A witness told police they saw two men running south from the store wearing dark clothes.

Pedigo said the incident is under investigation.
