A man who attempted to rob a Subway Sandwich franchise disguised with a ghost mask didn't have a ghost of a chance against the employees who thwarted the robbery by throwing soup at the thug.

The attempted robbery took place Friday evening in Braidwood, Ill., when the suspect, described as a 6-foot-tall, 250-pound white man in a ghost mask, barged into the Subway looking for trouble, not a $5 footlong, TheFW.com reported.

An employee leaving the restaurant was forced back inside by the masked bandit, Braidwood Police Chief Rich Girot told the Chicago Sun-Times.

“He pushed her down to the floor and kept yelling to open the register,” Girot told the paper. “A male employee threw a pot of soup at the suspect and they scuffled until [the robber] ran out to a black compact car.”

Police are still looking for the suspect and are reviewing security camera footage for clues, MyFoxChicago.com reported.

Although neither employee was injured, Girot said the woman was "shaken up" and taken to a hospital for examination, UPI.com reported.
