Crossbow Robbery Foiled

(Live Leak link)

You don’t see a crime committed with a crossbow every day. Shopkeeper Mohammed Razaq had just loaded a DVD for his five children when a man with a crossbow tried to rob the store. Security footage shows he appeared to shoot at Razaq, but he either missed or did not have the crossbow properly loaded. Razaq chased the would-be thief out the door with a pole he uses for changing the store’s sign. Razaq feared for his family.
He said: "He tried to load up the crossbow and I could see a big window pole in front of me, so I grabbed the stick and chased him.

"I felt he was threatening me and my family and kids, so I just had to do it.

"As soon as he saw me with the stick, he ran like mad. I tried to hit him, but I think I missed."

The suspect is still at large. Link -via Arbroath

Cross bows usually have a heck of a lot of pull on them. I can never load one one handed. I have to hold mine to the ground, clamp it with my legs and use both hands. Maybe this was a toy.
In other news, I bet his parents are so proud.

If all criminals were dumb enough to hold up stores with cheap crossbows that they have no real expertise in using, our streets would be sooooo much safer. Because really, how stupid do you have to be? I know we aren't allowed guns in the UK and all, but wouldn't a sword been just a tad more intelligent and effective?
