Man foils bank robbery after assuming it was an April Fool - March 31st 2009, 04:37 AM

A man inadvertently foiled an attempted bank robbery after assuming it was an April Fool prank, a court has heard.

Quote:
Customer Andrew Stewart was sitting down reading a newspaper in an Exeter branch of the Royal Bank of Scotland on March 31 last year when a raider burst in and demanded money.
Brian Davison, 32, put his hand inside his back pack then told cashiers: "I've got a gun. Seriously I've got a gun – hand over the ******* money".
But as terrified cashiers prepared to hand over a bundle of notes, Mr Stewart calmly walked up to the robber and said: "It's April the 1st isn't it mate? It's April Fool's Day".
When Davidson said to him "I've got a gun I will shoot you", Andrew replied "go on then shoot me" and grabbed the bag from his hands.
He opened it in front of staff and after seeing it was empty sat down and carried on reading his paper, Exeter Crown Court heard.
Davison fled the scene but was later arrested and has now pleaded guilty to affray.
Richard Crabb, prosecuting, said: "Prior to Mr Stewart's intervention terrified staff believed Davison was an armed robber. They were going to hand over a pre-packed bundle of marked notes."
The court heard Davison, of Torquay, Devon, attempted to raid the bank just hours after appearing at a local court on a charge of criminal damage.
He spent 403 days in custody on remand, which was the equivalent of a 30-month sentence, so he avoided a further jail term and made the subject of a two year community order.
I'm not sure if i were him the first thing that would come into my mind would be "oh its an april fool". but eh, i bet the robber wasn't expecting that response.

Sounds like a bit of a bad idea, but I guess it worked.

First of all, I'm glad that there wasn't actually a gun in his bag or things could have got fairly nasty.

Secondly, haha xD

I'd have liked to see the expression on his face if there was actually a gun in the bag, then he wouldn't have been so calm thinking it was an April Fool, but I guess it's good that there wasn't and no-one was hurt and no money was lost.

That could have ended so badly. Thank goodness there wasn't a gun involved.

That story makes me chuckle. I'm glad it ended okay though and nobody was hurt.

I wonder if the guy tried to play it off like it was an April Fool's Joke. "Oh, haha, you caught me! Go on with your business."

This is hysterical. Sounds like something from a movie.
