The man was able to flee the area following a scuffle but staff and witnesses provided a detailed description of the man to police.

Police tracked the man via CCTV and finding him a short time later on Moonta Street.

The owner of the restaurant said some staff were injured during the scuffle.

"We regret having the incident happen," the owner said in a statement.

"It was a spur of the moment decision to try and restrain him for the police as we were immensely upset that someone came in and racked up a huge bill and tried to run off."

A man from Salisbury was reported for theft and he will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date.
