|Crimestopper: A sticky tape dispenser|
An Orkney thief was stopped in his tracks mid-robbery when an enterprising till worker hit him on the head with a sticky tape dispenser.
Christopher Baird, 18, of Finstown, held Euan Brown, a till worker at Baikie’s Stores, at knife point, demanding money. But a defiant Brown challenged the robber and eventually whacked him on the head with the heavy stationery item.
Baird, who has admitted assault and attempted robbery, is in custody, awaiting sentance.
Watch CCTV footage of the incident.
