An Irish tourist has been arrested for attempting to rob baked goods at knifepoint.
The 25-year-old, Robert McTernan, from Newbridge, County Kildare, had just landed in Boston for a two-week holiday when the incident took place.
The Kildare man entered the bakery in a largely Italian neighborhood in Boston, grabbed a knife and demanded a cannoli from an employee, according to Associated Press reports.
An employee at Bova’s Bakery handed McTernan the pastry and called the police at 3.30am. Officers then found the Irishman and arrested him. The police could not find his knife.
The tourist was granted $2,000 bail and pledged not guilty. He was ordered to surrender his passport.
