MAN draws gun in UK kebab shop after being asked to don a mask

Armed police were called to the Rhondda Takeaway kebab shop in the village of Pentre, South Wales on Thursday, November 5 when a gunman aimed a pistol at a delivery driver who asked him to put a mask on.

Shop owner Norma Hemming, 62, said: ‘The man was arguing with the driver and then he pulled a gun out.

‘It was the driver he had the issue with because the driver asked him to put on a mask when he came into the shop.

‘He was saying things like he was Jesus and that Bill Gates wants us microchipped and they all want us controlled and all things like that.’

Police later confirmed they had arrested a 57-year-old man on suspicion of possession of an imitation firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.

A spokesman for South Wales Police said: ‘Shortly before 10.30pm last night officers were called to an incident at a takeaway restaurant on Gelligaled Road in Pentre, Rhondda concerning a man with a firearm.

‘Police officers, including armed officers, attended and a 57-year-old man from the Ystrad area was arrested.
