CCTV: Man attempts grocery store robbery, fails miserably

Posted Mar 30, 2013 by Anne Sewell
A man, dressed in rather bright and gaudy clothing, was walking past a grocery store. He got it into his head to attempt a robbery, but things didn't go quite as planned.
Attempted robbery caught on CCTV camera.
Attempted robbery caught on CCTV camera.
The CCTV surveillance video was released by police in Northern California.
The footage shows a suspect, wearing a bright yellow jacket and brightly-patterned trousers, walking up to the front window of a grocery store.
He peers through the window and apparently decides this would be a great place to rob.
The man then walks away from the window, and returns with his face covered by what may be a black stocking. He then throws something at the window, cracking, but not breaking it.
He then decides to flee, tripping twice. Police didn't mention if they had identified the suspect.
