ST. LOUIS - The owner of a south St. Louis bar fears he'll have to close down if people keep using the vacant building next door to rob his business.

The owner of Venice Cafe says robbers climbed the vacant building next door to get into his bar and climb down the wall of the bar's patio. He says they then cleaned him out of everything they made Friday night.

Venice Cafe was closed this weekend due to stolen money and property damage.

The staff wants the city to do something about the empty building next door. The bar will be open tomorrow. However, there's still no word on a potential suspect.
