Suspect arrested in Eli's BBQ robbery

EAST END (FOX19) - A man was arrested Tuesday in connection with an armed robbery at a popular East End barbecue restaurant.

Sadhi Cunningham, 25, is accused robbing Eli's BBQ on March 7.

Cincinnati Police Lt. Steve Saunders said the suspect brandished a handgun, took cash from the register and then fled in a black vehicle.

The robbery happened just before the lunch hour. Despite the crime, Eli's opened for business as usual.

Cunningham is charged with two counts of aggravated robbery. A judge on Wednesday set his bond at $75,000.
