70-Year Old Gunman, With Cane And O2 Tank, Fails To Rob Store

A man in his 70’s shambled into a tony Manhattan clothing store this week with a cane and pulling an oxygen tank, then pulled out a gun and said it was a stickup.

He shot at a customer who was running away and then shot off two rounds at the manager, shouting, “You want one? You want another one?”

No one was injured but one of the bullets did pierce eight suits before ending up in the jacket pocket of the last one.

Foiled by the lack of anyone handing over any money, the would-be Dillinger moseyed back to his shiny black Cadillac so he could go catch Maury.
