ROSEBURG, Ore. — Police in Roseburg, Ore., say a man who robbed a restaurant was armed with a can of bug spray.

Sgt. Aaron Dunbar says the robber entered Elmer's Restaurant late Monday wearing a green hooded sweatshirt, gloves and a beanie atop a shoulder-length blond wig that was pulled partly across his face.

A bartender tried to bat away the can of insect repellent when the robber brandished it, but the employee got a direct spray to the face.
