PERTH - Two men who allegedly attempted to rob a pharmacy ended up causing more damage to themselves on Thursday, with one of the bungling robbers squirted himself in the face with pepper spray and the other cut himself with a knife that he was threatening staff with, the WAtoday reported.

The pair allegedly escaped the scene with sleep apnea masks after their encounter with staff spilled into the pharmacy car park.

According to police one of the men sprayed himself in the face with pepper spray while trying to attack the pharmacist.
