MAPLEWOOD, Mo. (AP) — A St. Louis-area robbery was foiled when the owner of a business realized the would-be robber was using a water pistol.

KMOV-TV reports that Amanuel Perkins is charged with first-degree attempted robbery. He is jailed on $25,000 bond and does not yet have an attorney.

Police say the crime happened last week at Sole Survivor Leather store in Maplewood. Police say Perkins demanded money and the store owner feared for his life before realizing it was a multicolored water pistol, and not a real gun, that was being pointed at him.

The store owner pushed away the gun and told the assailant to leave, before police arrived to make the arrest.

Police say Perkins told them it was a St. Patrick’s Day joke.

    Another fool nominated for my list.
    This kid doesn’t know how blessed he is, this could have gone so wrong if the store owner had his own gun and blew his simple behind away. Instead of bond issuing, there would have been flower bringin’ and hymns singin’, damn dummy.
