Australian Man Tries to Rob Gas Station with a Boomerang

(Unrelated photo via Aoinecko)

A man walked into a Shell gas station in Tarragindi, a town south of Brisbane, Australia. He was armed with a boomerang.

The man demanded money from the customers, then the clerk. Although he was armed, no one seemed intimidated by his boomerang. It's no wonder: there wasn't enough room in the store for him to throw it properly.*

Eventually, the would-be robber left. People in the store called the police, who recognized their description. They arrested a suspect and charged him with being a public nuisance.

*I've just had a great idea for a mass-produced consumer product: a bayonet mount for a boomerang.
