Thief Attempts Robbery Using a Toy Gun, Gets Chased by Victim

hsc3080lIt’s always amusing when a story comes across the wire where a thief is foiled by his own doing during a crime attempt. One such incident happened recently in Salt Lake City, Utah, where a 41 year old woman tried to hold up a man using a plastic gun. The victim, who was sitting in his car, was approached by the woman and told to hand over his money. When he responded by saying that he didn’t have any on him, the woman proceeded to hit her plastic gun on his head, which caused it to break in to pieces. That caused the man to realize that the gun was fake, so he proceeded to chase after her and even managed to grab the “gun” away from her. The woman was eventually taken in by police for aggravated robbery.

Later, she told a police officer “I guess I shoulda’ thought this through more” and “I’m just getting what I deserve.”
