Ice helps thief fleeing Kensington bar

A female bartender in Kensington slipped on some ice while chasing a cash-snatching bandit Tuesday night, police said.

The 55 year-old  bartender told police that a well-dressed white man, about 6-feet-2 with black curly hair, entered Luke’s Bar on Cedar Street near Haggert at 11:30 p.m.

The man didn’t make any demands or announcements; instead he simply reached into the register and stole $100, police said.

When the woman saw the theft, police said, she tried to pursue the thief but moments later she fell and he got away.
