robbery 4According to reports, the assailant and another man attempted to rob patrons and a family member of the bar’s owner at around 2:40pm at Mt Pleasant Road in Springvale.

One patron was robbed of an undisclosed sum of cash and jewelry, following which one of the suspects attempted to rob the 28 year old son of the bar’s owner.

An alarm was however raised and other patrons of the establishment immediately pounced into action, subduing one of the assailants.

The second bandit however ran off and escaped in a white Nissan Almera motor vehicle. He returned shortly after and fired several shots at the patrons, before speeding off. No one was hurt, however when police arrived on the scene, they found the captured suspect bleeding from the wound suffered to his face.
