Salespeople foil attempted robbery at supermarket

Salespeople at a supermarket in Hradec Kralove foiled an attempted armed robbery on Saturday. When a masked robber approached one of the sales counters brandishing a knife and what was later found to be a fake grenade, the salesman refused to hand over the cash and a nearby shop assistant called the police. The man was apprehended within minutes. No one was hurt in the incident. The robber, who says he acted out of desperation and needed the money for food, has been charged.
