BAR HARBOR, Maine — The owner of the Town Hill Market is cut and bruised but otherwise unharmed after wrestling with and subduing a man who entered the store with a gun Wednesday morning and demanded money.

Richard Simis said two shots were fired from the would-be robber’s pistol during the struggle but that no one got shot.

The incident happened around 5:45 a.m. Wednesday as Simis was about to open the market. The business owner said he had turned on the store’s ovens and lights when the man came through the back door wearing a mask, hooded sweatshirt and duct tape over his shoes and hands. The man demanded money but when he looked away for a split second, Simis grabbed him and they struggled over the pistol.

Simis was able to wrestle the man out the back door and subdue him in the parking lot before flagging down a passing motorist, who called police. The would-be robber is now in jail and facing multiple charges.

What a bunch of dip shit, Jew Yorkers and Massholes.
Exactly... standing outside a local restaurant having a smoke some kids from New York asked their dad what I was doing... he replied "the man is smoking."

Gathering they were from NYC... due to the stickers etc on their hybrid car.

I can kinda see duct tape on the soles of the sneakers
Not that I ever thing like a dumb criminal
But , duct tape on your hands ?
Is that to eliminate your fingerprints ?

Thinking that would make it kinda hard to handle a gun

I would guess the perp was hiding his shameful less than white skin.

Why rob a store when it's just opening for the day? Stores have the most cash on hand at closing time.
