Since Dec 9, the man has robbed five bakeries in western suburbs, police said, each time using the same modus operandi. After placing an order, the man holds up what appears to be a fake revolver, points it at the person behind the cash register and takes his pastries without paying. No one has been injured in the robberies and in each case the value of the goods stolen has been low, at between eight euros (S$13.60) and 20 euros.
