According to police, the worker was finishing his shift at the 54th Street Grill in the Green Mount Crossing Shopping Center. Shiloh police rushed to the scene just after 1:00 a.m. when the employee reported being grabbed from behind and robbed.
The St. Clair County Sheriff's Department, Shiloh police and Illinois State Police set up a perimeter and used search dogs to track down the suspect.
The suspect was captured by police and taken into custody. Charges could be filed later Monday. The employee suffered a minor injured and was treated by EMS workers and released.
