Doug Schantz, owner of Nellie's Sports Bar at 900 U St. NW, was robbed at gunpoint around 1 p.m. Monday, April 19, by two men. Though there was a scuffle during the robbery, Schantz was not injured and the robbers fled with a "small amount of money," Schantz says.
"We were closed. Delivery people come in all the time and these guys came in behind me. I thought they were delivery people. One put a gun right in my face. I was on the phone. I said, 'Oh, my God. Oh, my God.' I started screaming at the top of my lungs, 'Help!'"
The thieves have not been apprehended.
