GOOSEBERRIES Cafe in Yokine was targeted by thieves overnight.

It is the second time in five months thieves have targeted the Blythe Avenue business.

Thieves smashed their way in through the glass doorway and stole money from the register.

Owner Ary Iswanto spent this morning cleaning up debris after the break-in.

“We usually open at 7am, but we had to clean up for a couple of hours; we are back on track now,” he said.

“The man that lives in the apartment upstairs said he heard a bang about 4am.

“I had a look at the CCTV from the salon next door but it didn’t show anything.”

Mr Iswanto said the last time the business was targeted, thieves got away with money, a laptop and an iPhone.

He posted on his business’s Facebook page to announce the break-in, but remained positive.

“So today we work for nothing and same again tomorrow,” the post said.

“We are open today as normal hour (sic).

“The boys are serving up great coffee and food this morning.

“We won’t let these @&$&& get to us.
