JOHANNESBURG - A man dressed in in a leopard-print robe, black mask, orange crocs, orange gloves and armed only with a hairbrush held up a Mcdonald's restaurant.

The fashion-challenged criminal was arrested after a brief police chase early this morning.

Police say he demanded money, allowing the impression that the hairbrush in his robe pocket was a handgun.

Texas police have recovered $130 in cash from the man.
