A Lincoln man thwarted a robbery attempt and ended up with his attacker's sweat shirt and gun.
Police spokeswoman Katie Flood told the Lincoln Journal Star that the intended victim was taking out his trash Saturday evening when he was approached by the gun-wielding robber who demanded money.
Flood says the man gave $20 to the robber, who again pointed his gun at the victim. That's when, police say, the man pulled the attacker's sweat shirt over his head and punched him in the face.
The robber took off, leaving his sweat shirt, the cash and the weapon, which turned out to be a BB gun.
No arrests have been reported.
