The 1400 block of N. 13th Street.
A twenty-year-old man is in the hospital for cuts to his face and ear after a man who tried to rob him months ago ran into him on the street and attacked him with a knife.

St. Louis Metropolitan Police are still looking for the thief/knife slasher, who is described as a thin man between 5'10 and 6'1" with a Mohawk hair style.

The victim told police he was outside a restaurant around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 1400 block of N. 13th Street when he saw the suspect, a man he knows only by a nickname and who tried to rob him several months ago.

The suspect slashed the victim in the face and on the ear with the knife, according to police. The victim was treated at a hospital, where he was in stable condition.

The suspect fled east on Cass Avenue.

Deb Woods they can post and you can still carry there, the most police will do is ask you to leave unless you refuse. Its a 100$ fine if you ignore the sign and someone spots your gun and you don't leave when they ask you. Money well spent for your life.

Dumbass should have had a concealed carry permit. Then there would be 1 less thief walking around.

2. Carrying of a concealed firearm in a location specified in subdivisions (1) to (17) of subsection 1 of this section by any individual who holds a concealed carry permit issued pursuant to sections 571.101 to 571.121, or a concealed carry endorsement issued prior to August 28, 2013, shall not be a criminal act but may subject the person to denial to the premises or removal from the premises. If such person refuses to leave the premises and a peace officer is summoned, such person may be issued a citation for an amount not to exceed one hundred dollars for the first offense. If a second citation for a similar violation occurs within a six-month period, such person shall be fined an amount not to exceed two hundred dollars and his or her permit, and, if applicable, endorsement to carry concealed firearms shall be suspended for a period of one year. If a third citation for a similar violation is issued within one year of the first citation, such person shall be fined an amount not to exceed five hundred dollars and shall have his or her concealed carry permit, and, if applicable, endorsement revoked and such person shall not be eligible for a concealed carry permit for a period of three years. Upon conviction of charges arising from a citation issued pursuant to this subsection, the court shall notify the sheriff of the county which issued the concealed carry permit, or, if the person is a holder of a concealed carry endorsement issued prior to August 28, 2013, the court shall notify the sheriff of the county which issued the certificate of qualification for a concealed carry endorsement and the department of revenue. The sheriff shall suspend or revoke the concealed carry permit or, if applicable, the certificate of qualification for a concealed carry endorsement. If the person holds an endorsement, the department of revenue shall issue a notice of such suspension or revocation of the concealed carry endorsement and take action to remove the concealed carry endorsement from the individual's driving record. The director of revenue shall notify the licensee that he or she must apply for a new license pursuant to chapter 302 which does not contain such endorsement.

Not true, Vincent A. Bess. I work in a bank building (but not for the bank) and I cannot carry onto the premises. I can be arrested by the bank & fired by my employer.

@Deb Bud & Noah Our law only says that if you decide not to obey the sign that nothing more than getting a tresspassing ticket can happen if they ask u to leave and you dont. The sign carries no for and the other restricted places are the same for the most part. The law says "dont got here, here, and here." but underneath most of them it continues today basicly "if you do go to these places in the list IT SHALL NOT BE A CRIMINAL OFFENSE. I cant get tot the statutes website or I would cite them.

That's why it is a ccw. CONCEAL AND CARRY. If it is CONCEALED it won't be a problem. Mine goes everywhere with me.

Well since he was outside the business on the side walk, atleast thats what the article said i dont think he would of had a issue, but who knows maybe the police would of had a issue with it. Plus most cops i know would never issue a citation if you were in a business and someone attacked you or another and you defended yourself with equal or greater force as long as you are justified, on another note that person who said their friend shot and killed that man who shot her years before, was she in immient danger for her life? There is a difference between gettinv revenge and protecting yourself.

Yeah but are you realistically willing to pay $100 per day on the off chance an incident like this will occur? Most people cannot afford such a luxury. And it shouldn't be that way - MO passed C&C but we cannot effectively carry for fear of being fined or worse. It's a nonsensical law that needs to be fixed.

I agree there is some stupidity in some of these legislation's.. but.. it's only an infraction in businesses.. which = a $100 fine for 1st offense.. not suggesting I, or anyone else should/would carry inside.. but if one did.. and ended up in this situation.. that would be $100 well spent. Something to think about.

I had a client who saw someone who had shot her years earlier. She saw him in St. Louis years later, ran to her car and shot him multiple times. Crazy. She went to prison for a long time too.

Sadly Noah Leitch- CCW doesn't help in most situations like this in MO because of the dumb "posting requirement" MO added to the law which gutted the effectiveness of the law. Now 90% of businesses in MO ban lawful C&C on their premises. So stupid. Way to pass a law MO & then gut the effectiveness of that law with needless ad ons & exemptions. But they did the same thing with our so-called "smoking ban" law. This State needs to either pass laws & stand behind them thoroughly or don't bother passing any at all. Because all this half-assed legislation is totally pointless.

If someone tried to rob me months ago, i would of gotten my ccw for personal protection then you know this story would of been different.
