The man entered the restaurant on the Dorpsplein around 11:20 p.m. and demanded money.
That failed due to the performance of a number of guests. They held the man until police arrived. “Due to the decisive action of a number of guests, the man was overpowered,” says a police spokesman.
Dozens of people

The man was arrested and taken to the police station. The firearm has been seized and it is being investigated whether it is a real or fake weapon, according to the police. There was no shooting.
