St. Louis police investigating armed robbery at Gateway Arch grounds

ST. LOUIS – For the second time in just over a month, St. Louis police are investigating an armed robbery on the grounds of the Gateway Arch downtown.

Police say a man and a woman both in their 50s were walking on the grounds at 100 Washington Avenue Wednesday night at 7:40 when a suspect pointed a gun and demanded a wallet. Police say the suspect hit the man with the gun before the victim gave up his wallet. The suspect ran from the scene. Authorities say the pair declined medical treatment at the scene.

On September 13, a St. Louis Blues prospect and a woman were robbed at gunpoint on the Arch grounds. A few days later, two teenagers were charged in federal court because the alleged incident took place on federal property.

The victims in that incident were not injured.

No final ruling over St. Louis County mask mandate after latest court hearing

No final ruling over St. Louis County mask mandate after latest court hearing

ST. LOUIS – There is still confusion over whether a mask mandate continues to exist in St. Louis County. 

That after no final rulings were made this morning by the Judge overseeing the controversial St. Louis County mask mandate court case. 

Judge Ellen “Nellie” Ribaudo held about a half-hour hearing with lawyers for Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and attorneys for St. Louis County. 

A key issue in the hearing was the impact of a ruling last week by Cole County Judge Daniel Green that bars local governing bodies from imposing COVID-19 health orders like mask mandates. 

We’re told the ruling does not officially go into effect until later in December. 

An attorney for St. Louis County, Neal Perryman, said county officials are still working through the ruling. 

Perryman conceded that county officials took the masking order off the county website following the ruling by Judge Green and that the St. Louis County masking order could now be moot. 

But Perryman would not go so far as to say that a mask mandate no longer exists in St. Louis County. 

An attorney for Missouri Attorney General’s office, Jeff Johnson, argued it’s not enough that the order was taken down from the website because St. Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page said just yesterday that the mask mandate was still in effect in St. Louis County. 

A spokesperson for AG Schmitt says Schmitt wants a preliminary injunction officially ending the second St. Louis County mask mandate announced by County Executive Dr. Sam Page back in September. 

Officials with the AG’s office have filed a lawsuit contending the mandate is illegal under state law. 

Judge Ribaudo set another meeting for December 9th so that attorneys on both sides could meet and try to work out the various issues that are still outstanding. 

Meanwhile, the latest COVID numbers from the St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force show local cases rising again. 

The seven-day moving average of hospital admissions is at 48. The Task Force wants that number below 40. 

The total number of COVID patients hospitalized is nearly 400. Earlier this month there were just above 250. 82 confirmed COVID patients are now in ICUs. 

Less than three weeks ago that number was 53.  And there are now 52 confirmed COVID patients on ventilators. Two weeks ago there were just 32. 

Tragically 10 more people died from COVID in the latest numbers. 

That has pushed our region into double-digit COVID deaths in a single day for the first time in more than two months. 

The Pandemic Task Force is expected to address the latest COVID developments later today. 

The mask mandate controversy is also on the agenda for tonight’s St. Louis County Council meeting.

Ravens’ Week 15 game vs. Packers pushed back to late-afternoon kickoff

The Ravens’ Week 15 home game against the Green Bay Packers has been pushed back to a 4:25 p.m. kickoff, the NFL announced Tuesday. Fox’s telecast of the game had been scheduled to start at 1 p.m. on Dec. 19.

The NFL uses “flexible scheduling” in Weeks 11-18, meaning that, after consultation with its broadcast partners, it can move games into prime-time or late-afternoon slots. The announcements are made no later than 12 days before the game.

The Ravens are 3-0 against NFC North teams this season, edging the Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears, but Green Bay should be the division’s stiffest test. The 9-3 Packers, led by reigning NFL Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers, have the NFC’s second-best record. On Sunday, they knocked off the Los Angeles Rams, 36-28, in Green Bay.

The Ravens’ Week 15 game will be second of three late-afternoon kickoffs in a five-week span. On Sunday and in Week 17, they face the Pittsburgh Steelers and Los Angeles Rams at 4:25 p.m.
