Armed robbery of ‘Chinese restaurant’ in Castries caught on camera (see viral videos)

The Sea Town ‘Chinese restaurant’ on Brazil Street, Castries was robbed by two bandits on Sunday night, May 5.

And videos of the robbery have gone viral (SEE VIDEOS BELOW THE ARTICLE)

The robbery, which occurred minutes before 7 p.m., was carried out by two males, one armed with a knife and the other with a handgun.

No one was harmed.

The bandits entered the restaurant just as a male customer, who was accompanied by a child, appears to be making an order. The customer dashes out of the way when he notices the bandits.


In the videos, the bandit with the firearm is the first to enter the restaurant, without wearing a mask. However, seconds later he pulls a black rag from his shorts and uses it to cover his face, from the nose down.

After pulling out the firearm, he points it at an Asian-looking man, who was seated, for a brief moment while the other bandit, who is dressed in a greenish hoodie and shorts, and brandishing a knife, makes his way to the cashier counter, and makes demands from the female employee, who complies.

After taking cash, the bandit appears to take beverages from the freezer as the video ends.

Reports are that they managed to take less than $200 in cash.

The frightened female employee had only resumed working at the restaurant for a few days, according to sources.

The Asian-looking man, who was seated when the bandits arrived, is reportedly the restaurant’s chef, a national of The Philippines.

There have been no reports of any arrest made in the matter but we will provide more information as it becomes available.

  1. These guys are manifestations of many things- unemployment is just a minute element! Just imagine that these 2 diseases will be represented in court by so called defense attorneys- whose jobs are to ensure that they find loop holes in the system to set them free. It gets worse when there are loop holes as big as the sun and as deep as Mariana's Trench i.e digital evidence. What a screwed up system!

    If I had my way- many lawyers would need lawyers to avoid being sentenced by me for screwing up a country!

  3. The commandment of God should be broadcast on every TV every radio infact every media on a daily basis. That man should hear how to live. Any government in office should make this priority a law by which the country should run. Then God will send blessings on this country . Seeing from heaven the government is advertising his holy law. Then the crime and violence and road death will be under control

  7. Some of these boys can get jobs and it's the same nonsense they will eventually do. They are lazy and want quick cash. They don't want to work but will let you work for them and come say pass it and have money which they spend off in two twos doing nothing good. But what goes around comes around.

    I Proclaim on the roof top that the “King is coming”! I announce to the ends of the earth, that the “King is coming”. And that the days of Noah are here. “Prepare ye the way of the Lord and make straight his paths.” Tell all the world that I am coming back soon. “I am coming for those who have laid their burdens down”. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
    The Father says: Many ask for just a cup of water thinking this is an enormous portion and more than anyone deserves. I have said you will walk into greater miracles than even the apostles. But who would believe in such unlimited options? Do you dare to be mocked for my name sake? Will you cast down the idols of yesterday and come forth? Why not you? Don’t look to your right or left to see if someone will come forward. Why not you? You already possess all that I require. A yielded person can accomplish more than an entire army. Do you believe yet? Many thinks this is too great of a risk, but what risk is there really in the hands of the almighty “king of kings” in charge of your days? How can you go wrong when you co-create with me? Many are called but few are chosen.
    There will be days of rejection but an endless amount of celebration at my table is yours forever. You had a beginning but there is no end to your influence. Will you leave the ninety-nine to go after the one? Walk in my heart for my love will overflow in all your ways. Be open and available for the transformation that only my glory can bring. My kingdom is on earth. I will show you how to drink from waters that never cease. Your potential in me is what will set the captives free and put the darkness on the run. Step up, for I am the one who makes a person qualified. I am wrapping my arms of love around you just to show you how important you are to me. Others may come to steal your joy but your joy comes from me. I am your help in your very time of trouble. I will see you through the fog and unsettling ground. I will take you from glory to glory. Cast away all the fear and doubt, nothing is too big or small for my time and attention.
    You are going through a time of change both internally and within your external world. What was familiar is making way for the unfamiliar. Many do not look forward to change, but I say this is the best news you can receive. I have promised to not leave you as you are, so we must keep moving on. As the scenery moves from one to the next find your feet surefooted. You will not stumble or get lost on some side trail. Adventure awaits the bold and courageous. Many will see this as trench warfare, but I assure you that there is a way more power and authority that my people are walking in over the whole earth.
    * These are the words of – Yahushua.
    Do you know him, he knows you? Repent; be baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who have not done so, for when the books are closed, no one will be able to enter in. God is sending warnings after warnings. We are in the End Times and he does not want ANY ONE to Perish. Time is running out, get saved now while you have time. He is the only way to salvation. Amend your ways and you will be allowed to remain in the land. Let those who have ears to hear and those who have eyes to see. Repent now! Remain strong, bold, courageous and steadfast in your faith.
