Belfast takeaway staff fight off robbers

By Staff Reporter

Two staff members at a Belfast drive-through fast food outlet fought off two would-be robbers on Saturday night.

Three men had tried to enter the takeaway in Brougham Street through a locked front door at around 10.15pm.

Detective sergeant Keith Wilson said: "The suspects then approached the drive-through area of the premises and threatened staff with what was described as a penknife.

"A struggle ensued between one of the suspects and two of the staff members, who managed to fight him off."

The suspects fled towards North Queen Street.

Police are also investigating the report of a theft at the same premises on Wednesday night when a cash till was stolen from the drive-through area.

"We are investigating the possibility these two incidents may be linked and would appeal to anyone with information to get in touch," added Det Sgt Wilson.
