(sth) – Last night, around 1am, a bar in the Grand-rue in Diekirch in the northern part of Luxembourg was robbed by four men.

According to witness statements, four men of dark skin colour came into the bar and threatened the waitress with a firearm. They took money and a number of drinks with them as booty and fled in direction rue du Pont on foot.

After they left, the waitress locked herself and the remaining customers in and they called police. A manhunt was initiated immediately and a patrol was dispatched to the bar. The public prosecution was informed and ordered the securing of evidence by an investigative team.

Witnesses estimated that the man holding the gun was in his mid-twenties and said he was of strong stature. He was wearing a dark jogging suit and gloves. His face was covered with a scarf and he had pulled a hood over his head. The other three men were wearing jogging suits and covering their faces with scarves as well.
