Swedish chef hurls meat cleaver at fleeing thief
www.thelocal.se ^ | 05/13/2010 | TT/The Local

Posted on 05/13/2010 11:28:12 AM PDT by WesternCulture

A chef at a Stockholm restaurant rushed out of his kitchen on Thursday afternoon and threw a meat cleaver at a departing thief as his restaurant was robbed for the second time in a week.

The robbery took place at 2pm at a restaurant in Hässelby Villastad in west Stockholm. Two masked robbers held staff at knifepoint and forced them to hand over all the cash in the till.

"Apparently the chef's meat cleaver struck one of the robbers in the back, but they were able to disappear from the scene. The same restaurant was robbed a week ago and I guess the staff were just tired of it," said police spokeswoman Christina Johansson.

Police had not made any arrests in the case by late on Thursday afternoon.

There really is no reason for anyone in Sweden to rob anyone else. They are on the dole from the cradle to the grave, are they not? sarc/

These bozos wouldn't have survived doing that in my kitchen at the sports bar. My cooks were some of the most depraved immigrant pirates to ever hold a chef's knife. Someone tried to mug one of them at about 1:00 am when he went out for a smoke. The kitchen emptied to the alley and the mugger left later via ambulance.

Many kitchens are like that. There are easier targets.

Say what? What kind of cleaver does this guy use a gumby blade?

OK, but that doesn’t rhyme with the old tv show.

I wonder if he actually got the cleaver to sink in the guy?
Shouldn’t be hard for a doctor to figure it out after the article was published.

It doesn’t say that the blade sunk in the guy, just that he was struck by it. Could have just been it by the handle.

Obviously an amature cleaver hurler.

- Nice to hear.

Anyhow, fellow Freeper, I’m Swedish, I hate thieves and I just love throwing meat cleavers all around.

Will I become a saint?

Me too.

Especially if the cleaver was used for cutting up chickens first. Nothing like a little salmonella to help things along.

Yeah, you know how these things go.
You throw a cleaver at me, and then I come back with a machete, then you have to get something like a sickle, before you know it you’re gonna need a chainsaw.

Dirty Harry would never approve.

Well if they had caught any of these guys on security cameras the chief could post pictures around town announcing the thieves were engaged to some of the ugliest women in town. That would be good for some laughs! lol

Should’ve used the cleaver for a circumcision. Whether or not he ever had one before.

Here's the story in Cockney:

The robbery took place at 2pm at a restaurant in 'ässelby Villastad in west Stockholm. Two masked robbers 'eld staff at knifepoint and forced them ter hand over all the bloomin' cash in the bloody till. "Apparently the bloody chef's meat cleaver struck one of the bleedin' robbers in the bleedin' back, but they were able ter disappear from the scene.

Yer can't 'ave a knees-up wivout a joanna. The chuffin' same restaurant were robbed a week ago and I guess the staff were just tired of it," said bobbies spokescow Christina Johansson.

Bobbies 'ad not made any nicks in the chuffin' case by late on Fursday afternoon.
