A Shenyang man surnamed Zhao who was caught in the act while attempting to rob a father and son depositing cash in an ATM has been described by Chinese media as being “the most miserable and funny robber” ever.
Surveillance shows that on November 29, 2013, Zhao appeared at an ATM machine located in Shenhe district, Shenyang. There were two men using the machine, and Zhao pointed a knife to one of the men’s necks, saying “Give me all your money! Hurry up!”
“Hell no!” the man said. The two apparently weren’t afraid of at all, and one of them even hit the knife away while the other knocked Zhao down. He was soon after arrested by the police.
“I did not know they were putting the money away, I thought they were withdrawing the cash,” Zhao said, “I didn’t get the money, so I thought maybe I could just steal some cigarettes, but that failed as well. The whole robbery was a complete failure.” Zhao said.
“The outside world is too dangerous, I have to withdraw”, Zhao said. “Making money is the dreams of others, mine is to get in here.”
What a fascinating dream you have, Zhao.
