Boston Police report a man who jumped the counter at Asian Thai Eatery and grabbed money out of the hands of the cashier around 7:30 p.m. yesterday just as quickly found himself grabbed and surrounded by her and cooks.
When police arrived, they arrested Joe Mulhern, 30, of New Bedford on a charge of unarmed robbery.
Ed. note: The cooks were probably on him pretty quick: It's a fairly small place, the counter's right in front of the doorway to the kitchen. And I wouldn't be surprised if they were armed with those cleavers they use for ribs.
