On Tuesday morning, shortly before 09:30, two masked men entered a petrol station shop on Thorenbergstrasse in Littau. Armed with a handgun, one of the two demanded money from the register. However, an employee managed to leave the store after a short time, after which the perpetrators also fled. However, no prey jumped out during the attack, and fortunately no one was injured.
In the afternoon, just after 1:30 p.m., the two men apparently tried again. This time they chose a store on Murbacherstrasse in the city of Lucerne. Again one of the perpetrators was armed with a handgun. But even in this case the men fled without taking anything. However, one person was slightly injured. As reported by the Lucerne police, the alleged perpetrators were found and arrested shortly afterwards at the Bundesplatz.
The people arrested are two Swiss people aged 32 and 35. According to initial investigations, the men are probably responsible for both robberies, writes the Lucerne police.
