It’s no big surprise that a robber ran away when a store clerk snatched his gun. What is surprising is that he returned and demanded his gun back.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Minneapolis police say that’s what got him arrested.

Police say the robber set his gun on the counter while he emptied the cash drawer. That’s when the cashier grabbed the gun and ordered the robber to leave.

When he returned a few minutes later, the clerk’s cousin fought with him, unmasked him and forced him to flee again.

Two police officers got a partial license plate as the man drove away. They traced the car and, inside, found a glove matching one left at the market.

The suspect is charged with first-degree aggravated robbery.
