VIDEO: Robber flees Aberdeen shop after being threatened by fan

A bungling robber fled a store in Aberdeen after being threatened to be ‘blown away’ by a fan.

Wearing an Iron Man mask, it didn’t take much to frighten the would-be thief away.

And he was described as “hopeless” by the owner of the city shop.

Sivakumar Thangavelautham, 44, was working behind the counter when the robber came into the Roslin Store at around 7.20pm on Tuesday night.

The robber, wearing a blue hooded top and the superhero mask, brandished a knife at the owner, but as the video shows fled empty-handed after the fan was aimed in direction.
