Robbery victims offer reward

September 15, 2005

Albany -- Owners of an Albany business say they're scared after a gunman robbed them Saturday. They are offering a five thousand dollar reward for information leading to the arrest of the robber.

 Steve Kalka and his sister Patricia say a man stuck a sawed off shotgun against his chest at their U.S.A. Restaurant Equipment store and demanded money.

The robber took about two thousand dollars, and raced off with a second man in a small black car waiting in the alley.

 The Kalkas say the robber appeared to be high on drugs, and they are scared he will kill someone if he robs again. Steve Kalka said "Of course, I am afraid for my life. Like I said, he get the money, I thought the same time he was gonna shoot me."

 Patricia Kalka said "At the end of the line, he is going to kill people. Get away and keep doing what he is doing, he is gonna kill people."

The Kalkas have owned businesses in Albany for 16 years, and this is the first time they have ever been robbed.

 Police think they know who the robber is, but have not found him yet.
