Never Bring a Knife to a Gasoline Fight

Today's feel good story:
A man who tried to rob a Lowell gas station over the weekend wound up getting hosed.

Police say Saturday afternoon, a man believed to be holding a knife, attempted to rob a gas attendant at the BP Station at the corner of Andover and High Streets.

Surveillance video captured the suspect walking up to the pump and then taking off running.

What it doesn’t show is the attendant, who was working at the pump, grabbed the nozzle, aimed it toward the suspect, and fired.
Too bad he wasn't smoking at the time. He would have positively glowed.
