A robbery at Mr. Sub in Bowmanville took an interesting turn on Sunday.
An Ontario man intended to rob the sandwich shop but changed his mind halfway through and got a sub instead.
According to Durham Regional Police, the perpetrator came to the counter and told the owner he was robbing the store.
However, when he saw the owner had a large knife and was calling 911, he opted for plan B — order lunch instead.
The male [..] said he was going to rob the store. The employee called 911 and the suspect then asked to purchase a sub.
