There’s not much to this story, but it’s so absurd that it needs to be on the record. Wednesday night in Rockford, Illinois, a man ordered a pizza from an unnamed restaurant. The non-customer then intercepted the delivery man in the parking lot, attempting to rob him…while pointing a loaded rifle magazine at him.
Needless to say, this tactic was ineffective. The two men struggled briefly before the magazine-wielder ran off. The delivery man called police to file a report and did not suffer any injuries from the incident.
The suspect is described as a 155-pound 5’8″ black man in his 20s or 30s, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black pants.
Is this the dumbest robbery attempt you’ve ever heard? A candidate for second place might be the guy who got chased out of one house with a gun immediately before being shot in a different house. Or maybe the guy who got shot after breaking into a home with a ‘Smith & Wesson Spoken Here’ sign on the door.
Regardless, we’re glad the pizza guy knew the difference between a firearm and a magazine (which is more than can be said for some politicians).
