Armed Robbery Suspect Taken Into Custody After Slipping and Falling On Ice While Trying To Flee

Gainesville Police Department

It looks like a Georgia man’s robbery attempt took a bad turn. 30-year-old Luis Sajbocho-Ordonez is currently facing armed robbery and aggravated assault charges after a robbery went wrong on Christmas morning. Sajbocho-Ordonez tried to rob a business when staff members fought him off causing him to slip on ice and hit his head on the floor, says the Gainesville Police Department, reports the New York Post.

The incident occurred at 1 a.m. on Christmas day, which officials said looked like a scene from the popular Christmas movie Home Alone. 

The suspect allegedly hid behind the business and drew a gun out on a staff member who walked out of the establishment. He and the employee then engaged in a physical dispute and Sajbocho-Ordonez went on to fire the gun after another employee walked out of the building and frighten him. The suspect allegedly attempted to escape the scene but slipped on ice and hit his head.

Reports say witnesses were able to retrieve two guns from him until officials got to the scene. Luckily, no one was struck.

“Fortunately, no serious injuries occurred and the perp went to jail,” said the police department.
