Police search for suspect in Once Upon a Child robbery

The Once Upon A Child clothing store in the 8000 block of Dixie Highway was robbed three times. An employee discusses the traumatic incident.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Police are searching for a suspect following a robbery of a children’s clothing store Saturday.


Metro Police say a man held up the Once Upon A Child store in the 8000 block of Dixie Highway shortly before 6 p.m.


Police told WHAS11 News the same man is responsible for another robbery at the same business last Thursday. According to employees, the same man also robbed the store on Halloween.


One woman said she was working the cash register last Thursday and this Saturday. She said she recognized the man and went to the back of the store to call 911 when he returned Saturday.

"I'm 8 months pregnant so I'm terrified for me and my child and the employees and customers because I feel like he's just going to keep doing it until he's caught," the employee said. "It's affecting us at home too, like we're not sleeping. We're waking up. We're not sure if he's going to find us and come to our house. You never know what a person like him is capable of."


No one was injured in the incident.


If you have any information on this individual, you are asked to call the Anonymous Tip Line at 574-LMPD.
