Fruitless attempt to rob internet cafe hard to swallow

A US teenager has been charged with attempted armed robbery at an internet café, but may also be charged with destroying evidence after he ate his “weapon”.

All police were left to photograph was the empty peel of a banana the would-be robber held under his shirt when demanding money from staff at the internet café.

John Szwalla was overpowered by brave web surfers, but downed the banana before police arrived. Perhaps he was planning to a-peel the charge for lack of evidence.
