(Edinburgh, Scotland) Early this morning, a burglar in a local home was confronted by Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, in his red cape and silver-winged helmet. Frightened out of his shoes, the burglar dove out a first floor window and fled without taking anything. Thunder God Thor chased him.
Construction manager Torvald Alexander, 38, was Thor, the Thunder God, who had just got back from a fancy New Year’s Eve costume party.
“As soon as he saw me his eyes went wide with terror,” Alexander said of the burglar. “He looked like he had had a few drinks and decided to do a late night break in, but he hadn’t counted on the God of Thunder living here.”Police are investigating and examining the burglar’s shoes. A BOLO for a barefoot thief was issued.
[Update] From another source. I’m speculating that Mr. Alexander looked more intimidating in the dark.
I’d agree. Anybody thaqt comes at me in the dark in an unfamiliar house wearing a bright red cape and horns would scare the hell out of me, for sure.
