Youth charged after robbery attempt at Colborne restaurant: Northumberland OPP

A youth has been arrested in connection with a robbery at a restaurant in Colborne, Ont., last week.

Northumberland OPP say just before 5 p.m. on March 17, a masked teen entered Vito’s Restaurant and Pizzeria on King Street in Colborne and demanded that an employee open the cash register.

“The suspect stated that he had a gun but a weapon was not observed by any witnesses,” OPP stated.

The teen fled the scene on foot prior to the cash register being opened. Officers searched the area but could not locate him.

On Monday morning, OPP said the teen was found and arrested.
