Oregon, Aug 16 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A man who robbed a restaurant in Oregon was armed with a can of insect repellent. These are reports from police who came to investigate the incident.

The man who robbed the restaurant on Monday evening was dressed in a green sweatshirt and he was also wearing gloves. The man also had a wig on his head that was partly pulled to cover his face. Reports say that a bartender who was on duty that evening had insect repellent sprayed on his face. The robber stole money from the restaurants’ cash box and fled. The amount of the money that was stolen was not disclosed.

The robber is said to have used the insect repellent can as a means of scaring the restaurant owners and workers so that he could steal from them. His attempts were successful as he managed to steal money from the restaurant. This is not a common case and it surprised many as no one has ever thought that a person can rob a restaurant with an insect repellent can and get away with it.
