AMSTERDAM — A café owner in Helmond scared a gun-wielding robber from his premises on Thursday night after throwing a tray of hot chips at the youth.

Police said on Friday the robber — estimated to be about 16 — entered the snackbar and threatened the owner and his wife with a handgun.

He demanded cash, newspaper De Telegraaf reported.

But when the café owner threw a tray of fries at him, the youth took to his heels.

He is still at large.
