Man raids McDonald’s in Reggio Calabria with a knife: Sicurtransport agent foils the threat
Eventful afternoon, that of last Tuesday 1 June, in the center of Reggio Calabria. Inside the McDonald’s in Piazza Garibaldi, in fact, the tragedy was touched upon, fortunately wisely thwarted by a Sicurtransport agent.
At about 6.30 pm, a foreign citizen entered the well-known restaurant, threatening to consume without paying. A fast food employee thus warned the agent, who was on the spot. The latter tried to explain the situation to the clumsy customer, but was then forced to drive it away for the resistance of man. Following the removal, however, the man returned to the club with a knife in hand trying to hit the security officer. With the help of another man present on the spot, the agent managed to disarm the aggressor, subsequently taken in charge by a patrol of State Police present on site and taken to the police station. During the scuffle, by the way, the agent reported several wounds between fingers and wrist, but he managed to avoid the worst by saving, with enormous professionalism and a spirit of sacrifice, the customers and staff of McDonald’s otherwise exposed to very serious risks.
