Edward Broaster

An Asian couple, proprietors of Amy’s Restaurant in Ladyville, came under attack by a pair of armed robbers on New Year’s Day.  According to Xiao Zheng Lo, she was inside her place of business when the duo stormed in.  During the invasion the thieves made off with seven thousand dollars in cash and other items.  Ladyville police strongly believe that the crime may have been perpetrated by a former employee.

“On the first of January we had a report of an aggravated burglary which occurred a block away from the police station at Amy’s Restaurant.  This report was made by Xiao Zheng Lo, businesswoman of Poinsetta Street where two individuals accosted her and her husband in the said restaurant and robbed them of seven thousand dollars worth of cash and other items.  We have a prime suspect that we’re looking for and this may have been an individual who had worked for them in the past. That burglary was committed by two individuals who covered their faces. None of the items have been recovered at this time.”


The matter remains under investigation and no arrests have been made thus far.
