Colombian armed robber targets karate school
Not a very bright idea, as it turns out
A Colombian armed robber evidently not au fait with martial arts is recovering in hospital after ill-advisedly targeting a karate school, Reuters reports.
The attempted blag took place in the nothwestern town Bucaramanga, and local police commander Colonel Julio Cesar Santoyo simply told Caracol radio: "An individual entered a martial arts school with a firearm but they managed to react, put their knowledge to use and disarmed him."
In "putting their knowledge" to use, the students apparently gave the ne'er-do-well a bit of a slapping, hence the need for medical attention. ®
