newsminer.com • Soda's icy blast foils Fairbanks robbery
FAIRBANKS — An attempted robbery was foiled Wednesday afternoon by a bottle of soda, according to Alaska State Troopers.
A University of Alaska Fairbanks employee was walking to lunch about 12:30 p.m. near the Administrative Services building on College Road when he was approached by a man holding a knife who asked for cigarettes and money.
The UAF employee responded by splashing the man in the face with a bottle of soda he was carrying, and the robber fled the scene.
He was last seen heading toward Mike’s Chevron.
The suspect is described a Native male, 30 to 35 years old, about 5 feet, 9 inches tall and 150 pounds. He had “rough skin” on his face and appeared to have not shaved in a few days, according to troopers.
His face also appeared to have been discolored or burned around his mouth.
Following the incident, UAF police sent out an e-mail to students, faculty and staff reminding them to be aware of their surroundings. There are several emergency phones located on the campus, and UAF also provides security escorts to cars or other locations on campus.
Anyone with information about the attempted robbery is asked to call troopers at 451-5100.Verified Libra- There sure are a lot of people born in August around here.

He got off easy, real easy.
