Pa. robbery foiled with can of beer

LANCASTER, Pa. - August 21, 2009 Lancaster police Lt. Todd Umstead says two men with bandanas over their faces attempted to rob Six Packs on Vine at closing time Wednesday. One of the men pointed a shotgun at the employee, who was stocking a cooler.

Umstead says the man threw a 12-ounce can of beer at the robber and both assailants fled the store.

Police say the employee could not tell if the beer struck either of the men but it was enough to chase them off.
