You know what never makes sense about these Baseball Cap Robbers? Their choice of teams. Take Cincinnati Reds fan. He tries to bust up a convenience store and a car rental company – in the same week – and is still wearing that Reds cap. Oh, did we mention this is in Rhode Island. How many guys are rocking the fitted ‘C’ in Woonsocket? Can’t be too many. Get a Sox hate, moron. This punk shouldn’t be hard to find.
There are two surveillance videos of Pedro Borbon trying to get him some money, but to no avail, says the local fuzz.
A violent attempted robbery inside a Woonsocket convenience store is caught on camera.
The brazen attempted robbery happened while a security camera rolled and while a brave store clerk fought back. The video shows the struggle inside a Woonsocket convenience store on Saturday night.
Police say as the clerk walked to the ATM to deposit money, the robbery suspect attacked the clerk from behind and put a knife to his neck.
In the other video, Reggie Sanders decides to get punchy when denied a car rental because he’s only 20. Not only did this homeboy not get himself some cash, he’s now up for two felonies. Expect him to be angry, possibly checking his iPhone for Reds free agent signings and possibly armed.
If you feel like turning in Kevin Mitchell is too much for you to handle, let us do the deed. Still waiting to bust the 0-for-2011 in Baseball Cap Robber cases foiled. Hit us up on the tip line.
