Four men stormed the Copper Chimney at the Chatsworth Centre, as the restaurant was closing its doors for the night.

The suspects demanded cash and cell-phones from employees. Mohammed Malik was the duty manager at the time of the attack. He says they were instructed to lie face-down on the floor for several minutes while the robbers made their getaway.

"There were four of them [carrying guns]. They started to push us back inside and told us - to give them money. They hit us, demanding more money. We told we don't have money. It was the [worst] experience in my life - I can't sleep at night," Malik said. 

Malik says he doesn't feel safe returning to work, but has no option as he has to support his family. 

He says they're in contact with centre management to increase the number of security guards during opening and closing times.
