Molotov cocktails were hurled at an Edmonton eatery, perplexing the owner

Key Takeaways:

  • Two times in Southeast Edmonton, Molotov cocktails were hurled at an Indian restaurant.
  • Mann has shared the footage on Facebook, hoping that someone can recognize the man who, according to Mann, twice attacked his store.

Molotov cocktails were thrown at an Indian eatery in Southeast Edmonton twice.

Both of the attacks on Mann Meats & Indian Cuisine are being looked into by the police.

The initial assault took place on Saturday. An individual can be on camera sprinting up to the storefront at 3315 34 St. NW before throwing a package at the establishment’s windows. It bounces off and catches fire on the ground rather than shattering the glass.

According to the building’s owner Gurdeep Mann, it was fortunate that the Molotov cocktail did not detonate because a delivery guy was seated inside, just three feet from the window.

He said, “That’s quite disturbing.”

Then, on Monday, surveillance footage caught the moment when a person appeared to break the front door with a rock while running up behind the establishment, lighting the homemade bomb on fire and throwing it at the door. Immediately after, they take off, running back in the same direction.

Initially reaching the height of the door frame, the flames slowly die down.

Mann claims that the rock broke only the outside pane of glass; little other glass was affected.

Nevertheless, the company owner declared that “someone just came with a bottle bomber and threw it into the building; this is quite alarming and dangerous for whomever [is] walking in, for our clients and customers and especially for the region as well as Edmontonians.”

The only additional information provided by the Edmonton Police Service was that patrol officers are instructed to visit the area at night as well as “are on the lookout for anything odd.”

In the expectancies that someone may recognize the guy who Mann says twice attacked his store, he has posted the videos on Facebook.

“We don’t know why someone would do that. He needs to be detained.”
