KENOSHA — An auto shop owner in Kensosha is speaking out, after several people attempted to break into his office during unrest Monday night.
He tells TMJ4 that he barricaded himself in his office and filmed, as the suspects pushed in a glass door. They then tried to unlock the metal frame of the door, but apparently failed.
As the possibility of a return to looting looms Tuesday night, the owner says he is prepared to stay in his office. He says he hopes his presence there will hopefully convince people looking to burn or loot, to stop.
