A stupid thief suffered injuries after robbing a store with a fake gun, police in Florida said.

Pensacola police said that they have arrested 24-year-old Jarell Blackmon, after being accused of robbing a convenience store by threatening the employee with a fake gun.

Blackmon was charged with armed robbery, grand theft, wearing a mask or hood during commission of a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and resisting without violence.

He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment before being booked into jail.

According to the police investigation, around 2:25 a.m. on Friday, Blackmon entered the store while wearing a camouflage hat and scarf over his face.

He approached the store clerk, 20-year-old Abed Alslaq, who asked him to remove the scarf. Blackmon refused and pulled out a fake gun.

Blackmon went behind the counter and grabbed some money and 10 cartons of cigarettes before walking out of the store.

While fleeing, Blackmon was hit in the neck by a shot from Alslaq. No charges have been filed against Alslaq.
