This is a first, I think. A man was robbed of his bag of tacos – at gunpoint.
FONTANA, Calif. – A hunger for carnitas nearly led to some carnage after a Fontana man was robbed of a bag of tacos at gunpoint. Police Sergeant Jeff Decker said the 35-year-old victim had just bought about $20 in tacos from a street-corner stand Sunday night and was bicycling home when the suspect confronted him and said "Give me your tacos."
The robber then took the bag, punched the man in the face and pointed a handgun at the man threatening to kill him. One shudders to think what he would have done for burritos. The criminal mastermind managed to turn a relatively low-level crime into a felony in one step. What a genius.
