How to really make a meal of attempted robbery…

Grimsby Telegraph, 20 July 2010 (story):

Man tried to rob Grimsby supermarket armed with a fork

A GRIMSBY man used a fork in an attempt to rob a Grimsby supermarket, but left empty handed.

Grimsby Crown Court heard Stewart Williamson, 29, went into the Somerfield store on November 26, last year, armed with a fork.

He approached staff member Sophie Foster, but when she informed him she couldn’t open the till, he said “I will stab you” and threatened other members of staff before leaving empty handed.

If he left empty handed, then presumably it means he dropped the fork. This goes criminally unmentioned.

All in all, this was a highly ambitious plot. I find it hard enough to use a fork to twirl spaghetti, let alone rob a Somerfield.
