Third Birkirkara hold-up in a week
A man wielding a knife ran away with a small amount of cash this evening after demanding the money from a shopkeeper in Birkirkara.
The hold-up took place at about 6 p.m. in a shop in Valley Road and followed the same pattern as other hold-ups in Birkirkara shops last Thursday and on Tuesday.
No one was injured.
Magistrate Antonio Micallef Trigona is holding an inquiry.
