We all know that there are some pretty dumb criminals out there however this one may just take the cake. Jerome Taylor, a 20 year old man, entered a restaurant with a mask on and waving what appeared to be a small hand gun. The chefs at the restaurant immediately took up their knives in order to fight this threat off, however when they approached Jerome he quickly became apologetic claiming he was doing this for his child. He soon fled, however was soon apprehended by the police whom discovered he did not really have a gun rather it was just his iPhone. The restaurant did not press charges on Jerome out of pity however the police still charged him with attempted robbery interfering with an officer. I wonder how many people could actually think that they could rob a place with just a mask and an iPhone.
