A Texas man managed to rob a McDonald’s Thursday armed only with a comb.

According to KDFM-TV, 29-year-old Gevondis Demond Joseph entered a McDonald’s restaurant in Groves, Texas on Thursday morning wearing a piece of clothing over his face, a leopard print robe, orange gloves and orange crocs.

Police officers were called to the scene, and were told that Joseph was armed with a gun. The officers caught up with Joseph at a nearby Cricket Wireless store and took him into custody.

During the arrest, officers found that Joseph did not have a gun on him. Instead, he reportedly used a comb in his pocket to pretend he was armed.

Joseph was charged with first-degree aggravated robbery.
