BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — The Bloomington Police Department arrested two men and are looking for a third suspect regarding a Friday morning aggravated armed robbery.

At approximately 2:20 a.m. Friday, officers responded to a Steak ‘n Shake in Bloomington to investigate a robbery that had just occurred.

When officers arrived, they learned three black males were armed and entered the restaurant to conduct a robbery. Two suspects approached customers and demanded their wallets. Police also said they pistol-whipped someone who refused to hand over their wallet.

The third suspect allegedly remained in the back of the restaurant while demanding employees to open the business’ safe.

Two suspects left the store and then tried to go back in. One of them tried to strike the door open with his handgun, which discharged and struck him in the hand with a bullet. All three suspects then fled on foot.

Later, police arrested 19-year-old Bloomington man Jamar J. Cain on charges of armed robbery and discharge of a firearm. Kwiezon L. Bausley, also 19 of Bloomington, was treated for non-life threatening injuries and was also arrested and charged with armed robbery and discharge of a firearm.

Both were transported to the McLean County Jail. The third suspect remains at large.
