Greg Ketter, owner of DreamHaven Books in Minneapolis MN, and one of his employees were attacked November 9, 2020 while closing the store. Ketter wrote,
Ryan and I were just beaten and robbed tonight as we were closing the store. Ryan took some serious punches. I must have been hit in the head but it happened so fast that all I remember is being on the floor as the two assailants kicked, punched and scattered books and shelves. Somewhere along the way they did get my wallet (I think it fell out of my pocket as I was fighting them off) and the days total cash.
The store also sustained some minor damage. “It’s mostly emotional damage for me – I’m just so tired of this stuff.” The store was looted during protests in May 2020. For more, see his Facebook post: <www.facebook.com/greg.ketter.3/posts/4215211995172521>.
