Restaurant hit in armed hold-up

A man flashed a silver handgun while robbing a restaurant Wednesday night on Bridgeport’s East Side.

The man took cash from the register of East Main Fish n Chips on Putnam Street shortly before 9 p.m. He then reportedly fled west on Putnam Street and south on Park Street.

There were no reports of injuries from the incident and it was not clear how much money was taken from the eatery.

The man was described in radio reports as wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and black pants. Police were still searching for him late Wednesday.

    There is NO PUTNAM AVENUE on the East Side of Bridgeport.

    There is a Putnam Street!!!

    Two Weeks ago, you reported a Carolina St. on the East Side of Bridgeport and I Reported that it was actually Caroline Street(named after PT Barnum’s daughter). Let’s see if you know who PUTNAM ST. was named after!

    Do your reporters and editors ever do accuracy checks?

    Small mistakes make me question how many other mistakes your paper is making!
