    Armed Robber Disguises Self As Chicken

    Robber Leaves With Undetermined Amount Of Cash

    COLUMBUS -- A man wearing a chicken suit robbed a Kroger grocery store last week in Columbus, Ohio.

    Police said a white man wearing a mask and bright yellow chicken suit with orange chicken feet entered the Kroger at 5800 West Broad Street at about 11:30 p.m. Friday. The robber showed employees a gun and demanded cash from the store's safe.

    A store surveillance camera captured the robbery on tape.

    "It's pretty extraordinary," Columbus police Sgt. Shaun Laird said. "We've never had something like this. We've had guys wear fake mustaches now and again, but nothing like this."

    The robber was not caught, even after he left the store in costume.
    the robber faces several charges, including robbery, aggravated menacing and intimidation.
