Springfield Man Arrested for Bar Robbery

Springfield Police have arrested a man they say robbed a downtown wine bar of two-thousand dollars.

Officers say 51 year old Steven Jugan, posing as “Fawn Giovanni,” sat at the bar in Elixir on east Washington for a couple of hours. Shortly after the bar closed, Jugan allegedly put a gun to a patron’s head and threatened bar employees before taking the night deposit bag.

Police found him in a large warehouse on north 2nd street, where they believe he lives. Jugan was on parole for aggravated robbery. He’s been charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault, and unlawful use of a weapon.
