Milwaukee man charged with robbing pilot truck stop and race track the same night | Crime and courts


CALEDONIA – A man from Milwaukee has been charged with robbing a truck stop and a pilot racetrack the same night.

Norman A. Danowski, 33, has been charged with two counts of armed robbery with threat of force.

According to a criminal complaint:

On Thursday, an officer was dispatched to the Pilot Truck Stop at 13712 Northwestern Ave. for a flight. He was told that a man, later identified as Danowski, had threatened to use a knife against the cashier and was seen leaving on a bicycle.

The cashier said he walked over to her and pointed the knife at her while telling her to open the cash register. He told her to take a bag and put some money in it, but instead she fled the store. The shift supervisor saw Danowski going east on his bike. It was determined that $ 1,015.06 had been stolen.

At 2:20 am, officers responded to the Speedway area at 4960 Douglas Ave. for an armed robbery. An employee said he was talking to another customer when Danowski walked in and grabbed a donut. The employee asked him which crate he would help him with, then Danowski asked him to empty the crate. He held up a knife and pointed it at him.

A roadside check was carried out on a car driven by Danowski and several items were recovered from the car, including more than $ 2,000 in cash.

Danowski was given a $ 50,000 cash bond on Thursday in Racine County Circuit Court. A preliminary hearing is set for Sept. 23 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., according to court records online.
