A Chicago man has been charged with robbing a Batavia liquor store Saturday afternoon.
Antwann L. Hunt, 27, of the 1300 block of South Spaulding, was charged with armed robbery (no firearm), a Class X felony, according to police.
He was also charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor child endangerment, Batavia police said.
At 2:15 p.m. Saturday police were called to Batavia Pantry at 929 E. Wilson St. A 36-year-old clerk told police he had been robbed and suffered injuries to his hand and head when he struggled with the suspect.
A patrol officer saw someone matching the description the clerk gave running on the 1000 block of East Wilson, ran after the suspect and stopped him.
According to police, Hunt had a knife and cash obtained from the robbery.
Hunt was taken to a hospital for minor injuries to his nose and hand, and a police officer was taken for minor injuries suffered during the foot chase, according to police. The clerk was treated at the scene.
Hunt was charged with child endangerment because police said he left children ages 6, 4 and 1, alone in an apartment on the 1100 block of East Wilson. Hunt has been staying at an apartment there, police said.
Bail was set at $300,000.
