Fruit of the Loom locked and unloaded

A Penn­syl­va­nia man who was try­ing to guar­an­tee safe sex ended up in a very unsafe posi­tion –after two men robbed him at knife­point, tak­ing noth­ing but a con­dom. The man, whose name was not released, was walk­ing down a street on the east side of Erie when the men approached him and took the sin­gle con­dom he was car­ry­ing. We’re pre­sum­ing it wasn’t in use at the time.

A 64-year-old man in Aus­tralia tried to steal a woman’s car at knife point but appar­ently it took him too long to load his walker and gro­ceries into the vehi­cle he wanted to steal! The man allegedly approached a 22-year-old woman in the park­ing lot of a Kmart and held her up with a knife he had just pur­chased in the store. The woman gave the man her car, and as he was load­ing his gear she called the author­i­ties. Police arrived before the old man had time to leave. A respond­ing police offi­cer called it “the most bizarre inci­dent” he had ever encoun­tered on the job. The senior sus­pect was charged with one count of armed robbery.

Con­siglio says the offi­cer was on patrol at about 4:30 a.m. when he was con­fronted by the man. Appar­ently, the guy was naked below the waist except for his shoes.  The pros­e­cu­tor says the man raised his hands while hold­ing a dark object the offi­cer thought was a gun. Turns out the dark object was…his under­wear! The offi­cer then shot the man in the shoul­der. The man’s cur­rent con­di­tion hasn’t been released and no word on if he got a chance to put his under­wear back on.
