Local fun - kidnappings and liquor license suspensions

Here's some stuff that has been going on in the Inland Empire as of late.

From the San Bernardino County Sun:

A masked robber kidnapped a woman at knifepoint Thursday, forcing her to drive to a bank and withdraw money from her account.

The victim, a woman in her late 40s, was not injured, police said. She called Upland police after the robber got out of her car....

Several residents called Upland police at 11:57 p.m. when they saw a man accosting a woman over her purse in a garage area in the 400 block of West Ninth Street....

The man, who was armed with a knife, demanded the woman drive to a bank and pull money out of her account using her ATM card, Doyle said. The man took several hundred dollars.

Police said the man got out of the victim's car at Eighth Street and Euclid Avenue.

And another article from the Sun:

Don't expect to drink any margaritas or martinis at Dave & Buster's until early next month.

The liquor license for the Ontario Mills dining and entertainment venue known for its colorful mix of food, booze and games, was suspended Thursday for 25 days.

John Carr, spokesman for the state Department of Alcohol Beverage Control, said the suspension came after the ABC filed an accusation against the business for "operating a disorderly house." That occurred March 31, and negotiations ensued determining what the penalty would be and when it would occur, Carr said.

Ontario police had responded "numerous times" to fights, public drunkenness and other problems, Carr said.
