Manager at Greek restaurant AMMOS in SA angered after firebombing attack

·

In the early hours of Monday, February 26, a popular Greek restaurant was targeted and left in flames in North Adelaide, South Australia.

The newly opened Greek restaurant, AMMOS Greek Bistro, was firebombed at 3 am when hooded suspects smashed the front window of the venue and threw two Molotov cocktails inside, which then burst to flames.

The manager of the restaurant, Nikola Novakovic, believes it was attacked due to jealously of the restaurant’s success.

“We do massive numbers every weekend, just shows the effort and time and money we put into this,” Novakovic said.

“For someone to do this to a small family business, not even you know four-five months running, is just terrible.”

7 news reported that the incident was first reported when the AMMOS Greek Bistro’s chef, who lives above the restaurant, heard the attacks while watching TV.

South Australia police were called to the scene and said the suspects were seen driving off in a silver hatchback, heading east on Ward St in Adelaide’s north.

Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) firefighters came to assist and put out the flames, and said the damage was estimated to be more than $100,000.

AMMOS is expected to reopen next month after it is repaired. Although no arrests have been made, police are continuing investigations.
