Racine police are searching for two male suspects who allegedly robbed a woman that was taking the cash deposit to the McDonald's restaurant, 3037 Douglas Avenue, where she worked as a manager.

The incident happened about 9:40 a.m. Tuesday in the 3000 block of Douglas Avenue.

Two men driving an older model Tahoe or Suburban are suspected of intentionally crashing into the woman's car in the 3000 block of Douglas Avenue in the City of Racine. The men are suspected of taking the cash and a cell phone from the woman, according to preliminary reports.

The vehicle had a temporary tag and was last seen going east on Carlton Avenue. The driver was last seen wearing a Brewer's hat.

You gotta admit-crooks today are getting more and more clever. Too bad that cleverness isn't used to get and hold a JOB!!!

All fast food needs to have an armored truck pick up their money. They are putting their workers life in danger. Not to mention the car was crashed. Bet the employees insurance had to cover it.

No description of the two men?

If they put in descriptions, the black community might have its feelings hurt.Just not enough Obama stash to keep them home and not commit crimes. PUT IN ALL RACE SCRIPTORS PLEASE. If its whitey, blackie, brownie, spicey. curried....

@John and Avenging, it's standard practice within crime reporting not to report just race when it's the only physical description we have. Now if I had more of a description like -- a 5'5'' tall white guy who is bald and has blue eyes, we'd use race. But saying they are looking for a white guy or a black guy isn't descriptive enough, nor is it useful. It's not about having people's feelings hurt, and I've been writing about crime well before Obama was in office (14 years). So, *shrug* I'm not going there.
