Joshua James Flutey, a chef from Waltham, appeared in the district court on Tuesday, charged with demands with menace to steal in relation to the incident on October 3 at Henry’s Beer, Wine and Spirits on Moorhouse Ave.
Police allege the 35-year-old walked into the liquor store about 8.45pm and wandered around before carrying a bottle of whiskey to the counter and presenting a knife.
But he was met by a bold staff member, who reportedly told Flutey to go away in no uncertain terms.
“This is a robbery,” the alleged offender said.
The staff member behind the counter replied “f**k off” and Flutey left the store, police said.
He is next due to appear in the district court on November 5.
