Staff members at a Chinese restaurant in a County Clare town bravely challenged a knife-wielding thief, who then fled the scene empty-handed.
At approximately 10 p.m. on Saturday, April 17, a teenager wearing a black hood, a black face mask, and a knife walked into the Shannon Palace Chinese restaurant in Tullyvarraga, Shannon. He demanded money from the staff member at the front of the house, who ran to the back of the restaurant.
According to Crime Prevention Officer Sergeant Triona Brooks, “This man was challenged by other staff members and left the scene empty-handed. Fortunately, no one was injured in this robbery.
“We are requesting the assistance of the public in this investigation. If anyone was near the restaurant and saw this man or anyone who might have dash cam footage, please contact Shannon Garda Station on 061 365900 “.
