PASADENA, Texas (PIX11) — A store clerk accidentally thwarted a would-be robbery when she laughed at the suspect’s disguise.

According to the Daily Mail, the unidentified man entered the Donut Hole in Pasadena, Texas and brandished a gun at the employees.

Instead of intimidating the clerks into giving him money, they simply laughed at his outlandish disguise.

The suspect, who was described as a tall, skinny man, was wearing a hoodie and a long blond wig.

Thinking that the robbery was a joke, the clerk laughed until the suspect fled the scene empty handed.

The Daily Mail reports that the clerk, who had a limited understanding of English, thought the incident was a prank because of the ridiculous costume.
