An employee at an Illinois Subway restaurant stopped a robbery by throwing a pot of soup at an armed robber wearing a ghost mask, police said. The attempted robbery happened at 6:45 p.m. Friday when an employee was leaving the restaurant and was forced back inside by the masked bandit, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. “He pushed her down to the floor and kept yelling to open the register,” said Braidwood Police Chief Rich Girot. “A male employee threw a pot of soup at the suspect and they scuffled until [the robber] ran out to a black compact car.” Neither of the employees was injured, but the woman was “shaken up” and taken to a hospital for examination, Girot said. Girot said police were reviewing footage from security cameras.

bonds with them.Beaky is a chattering lory who will only be given to
new owners with experience handling exotic birds. Lusher says
Beaky needs interaction with people or other birds to have a
fulfilling life.
