Because this is Australia and that’s what happens.
A man from Tarragindi, Queensland, has attempted to rob a local service station with a boomerang.
Y'know - A boomerang. Like this:
A boomerang is a traditional weapon in Australian Indigenous culture, usually used for hunting.
The man entered the service station and threatened a man behind the counter with the boomerang...He was later arrested but was not charged. He appeared in court in relation to public nuisance.
