A man reportedly stole thousands of dollars from a New York City restaurant before coming back to the establishment the next month and unsuccessfully trying to rob it again, according to NBC 4 New York.
The individual purportedly lifted about $20,000 in cash from a safe at Manhattan’s Cosme restaurant on July 28, the NYPD told The Daily Caller News Foundation. Police said the man showed up at the restaurant and went to its back office again in August, but failed to crack the safe a second time, according to NBC 4 New York.
