A 33-year-old Kfar Saba resident was arrested Monday morning after he threatened restaurant workers in Tel Aviv at gunpoint, demanding to be served shawarma.

Shawarma is a dish of grilled meat, usually turkey or lamb, shaved off a large block kept rotating on a spit and served in a pita or wrap.

A short time after the suspect fled the scene, police received a report of a man who matched the description of the hungry crook also threatening the owners of the nightclub HaOman 17.

The suspect was finally arrested at a checkpoint set up at the entrance to Kfar Saba. He was set to appear before the Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court for a remand hearing.
