Employees at a Chinese takeout restaurant in Philadelphia were put in harm’s way after several men attempted to blow up the store’s ATM machine.
The still unidentified suspects reportedly threw explosives at the New Century restaurant at around 1 a.m. on Sunday, WPVI reports.
Situated on the 2500 block of Germantown Avenue, the establishment was apparently targeted for the ATM machine inside it.
According to the Philadelphia police, the men were targeting the ATM when they first lobbed an unspecified explosive inside the eatery.
They then hurled another explosive at two restaurant workers via the plexiglass opening at the counter.
Fortunately, none of the employees were injured from the second explosive. The suspects also failed to get any money from the ATM.
The incident is currently under investigation by the Philadelphia police, the fire marshal’s office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
