AN alleged would-be thief was left red-faced, literally, last night after he was foiled by a quick-thinking employee and bucket of chilli.
The 24-year-old Tempe man allegedly attempted to snatch money from a cash register in a Rosebery takeaway store after he became embroiled in an argument with two employees around 6.30pm.
One of the staff members, a 40-year-old man, ran to the front of the store and called police while his 27-year-old female colleague tussled with the man.
After smashing the cash register open on the floor, the man hit the woman across the chest as she attempted to thwart his alleged robbery attempt.
She then threw a nearby bucket of chilli over his head, instantly flooring him.
Police arrived within minutes and arrested the man.
He was taken to Mascot police station where he received treatment for minor burns and was charged with assault with intent to rob.
He was denied bail and will appear in Waverly local court later today.
