'Cartoon robber' falls foul of costume
A robber dressed as American cartoon character Gumby appears to fall foul of his costume while trying to hold up a convenience store.
Police in San Diego said the person told the shop worker he was being robbed, fumbled inside the costume as if to pull a gun and then dropped 27 cents before leaving.
A $1,000 reward is being offered to catch the would-be robber.
