This man may be the worst robber — and possibly the worst dresser – utterly failing while surveillance cameras recorded the whole thing for police and the Internet.

Watch as he approaches a grocery store in Redding, California.

He first cases the place while the store’s camera gets a good shot of his face.

He then ducks behind the corner and puts a stocking over his face (to hide his identity).

His identity secure, he whips a rock at the glass but appears to scare himself in the process.  The bumbling thief takes off, tripping over a handicap parking spot — twice.

Chances are this guy will be trading in his polka dots for prison stripes real soon.
