FLORIDA (DS): A man tried to rob a Florida pizzeria but ended up leaving after a worker simply told him "No". The female attendant assumed the man, who was brandishing a knife, was joking and laughed when he asked for the money. She then said "No" twice and he left the shop, removing the ski-mask he was wearing and getting into a car. A passing motorist saw the 'robber' remove his mask and followed him home, alerting police to his address.

 When questioned, the car's owner revealed that his friend had borrowed the vehicle for a 'booze run', reports Sun Sentinel. The would-be criminal, Phillip Joseph Steinberg, was arrested just 12 minutes after his botched robbery attempt.
