Dude Dons Sleeping Bag As Cape And Tries To Mug A Guy
"Authorities said a man wearing a sleeping bag as a cape and carrying a screwdriver as a weapon tried to rob someone in the parking lot of a Gainesville business. Police said a 46-year-old man approached the intended victim early Sunday morning and asked for money.
When the man refused, police said the man threw off the cape and pulled the screwdriver from his waistband. The other man quickly ran into a store and called 911."

This guy failed Mugging 101, when you are robbing a person it`s imperative that you look imposing and intimidating. When you wear a sleeping bag as a cape and brandish a screwdriver, you don`t look very intimidating.
It`s no surprise that the intended victim refused to give the hapless mugger any money. The mugger is lucky that he didn`t get his butt whipped.
It`s also not surprising that the suspect was nabbed by the cops a few blocks away. I imagine it wasn`t too hard to find a fleeing suspect wearing a sleeping bag as a cape.
Now that the mugger is in jail, he needs to pick up a few tips about his chosen profession from his cell mates.
