Bandits rob KFC St Helena

Bandits have struck two fast food outlets in the St Helena area in less than 24 hours.

According to police reports, around 9 pm Thursday, masked assailants entered the KFC outlet and announced a hold-up.

The bandits took cash from the register, raided the manager's officer and also relieved customers of cash and other valuable items.

On Wednesday three armed bandits had also robbed the area's Royal Castle outlet.

Investigations in both cases are ongoing.
