Cook fends off robbers by using ladle

Posted by Trina Edwards - email

PRICE HILL, OH (FOX19) - A cook at a local Chinese restaurant stopped a robbery in progress by grabbing the nearest weapon she could find - a giant ladle.

Two suspects entered the China Island store on Warsaw Avenue around 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon and began talking to the clerk as if they were going to place an order. The suspects then displayed a handgun and demanded money from the cash register. The cook behind the counter ended up chasing the suspects out of the store by using the ladle.

The suspects fled with nothing and were last seen running westbound on St. Lawrence Avenue. They are both described as black males in their late teens to early 20's with light complexions and wearing all black clothing.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
