A somewhat strange robbery attempt took place today at a convenience store in Sola, near Stavanger. The staff must have had a shock, then a blank stare, when a masked robber stormed through the door armed with a knife and a video camera(!). He shouted “this is a stickup!” before he apparently changed his mind. His next move was to take off his mask and put the knife down on the counter.

“It was only meant as a joke”, he said, showing the staff that he filmed the entire robbery attempt/stunt/joke with his camcorder.

The police were not laughing at the joke when they arrived shortly after, however. They took the man, who has a previous criminal record, down to the station.

“We’ll leave it up to the police attorney what the outcome will be from this attempted robbery” was the statement from the police.
