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.

Every­one has a few faults. In Beaky’s case, he swears (a lot) and he
bites.Not good qual­i­ties for a par­rot seek­ing a new home.Still,
hon­esty is the best pol­icy, so the Royal Soci­ety for the Pre­ven­tion of
Cru­elty to Ani­mals has decided to come clean about his
short­com­ings. Super­vi­sor Angelina Lusher said Wednes­day that
any­one who takes Beaky in will have to put up with some rude
lan­guage. The agency also says he tends to bite peo­ple until he
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.
