A man who tried to steal a till from a corner shop while wearing a pair of underpants on his head is being sought by police.
The man used a pair of pants during his attempted raid
But the would-be burglar left the south Wales store empty-handed after the Y-fronts slipped down over his face, temporarily blinding him as he threatened the cashier.
The man also hit himself on the head with the till as he tried to pull it away from the counter - leaving him with a cut above his left eye.
The attempted robbery took place at the Spar shop in Cefn Forest near Blackwood.
"He was not the most well-prepared robber we have come across," said a spokeswoman for South Wales Police.
"He walked into the shop with a pair of underpants over his head - but he could see through two eyeholes.
"But at the crucial moment they slipped down so he couldn't see a thing."
Police said the man, in his late teens or early 20s, was about 5ft 9ins, with a skinny build and shaven fair hair.
The pants were described as blue and white.
