(ADW) A burglar has been caught red-handed at a restaurant near Clervaux in the early hours on Monday morning, while two others escaped the scene. Police are appealing for witnesses.

A restaurant owner in Lentzweiler, not far from Clervaux, was alerted to the break-in just before 6am via his mobile phone and rushed to investigate.

Sure enough, when he arrived he noticed the building had been broken into and immediately alerted the police.

Officers quickly arrived and managed to capture one culprit red-handed. However, two other suspects managed to flee the scene.

The only description of the fugitives available is that they are white and in their 20s.

Police are appealing for witnesses, or anyone who may have seen something suspicious at the time of the incident, to call the emergency number: 113.
