Two masked men mistakenly held up a Baltimore bar where, coincidentally, a police retirement party was being held.

The armed robbery occurred on Tuesday at Monaghan's Pub in unincorporated Woodlawn in Baltimore County.

Joseph McInnis III, 21, and Tyree McCoy, 22, entered Monaghan's with the intent of robbing the cash register and possibly causing bodily harm if anyone resisted.

The robbers didn't notice a group of off-duty police officers who had gathered to celebrate a sergeant's retirement.

Monaghan's owner Jack Milani said the clueless armed robbers demanded cash from the register then fled. An employee interrupted the party to alert the officers that they had just been robbed.

A few of the younger officers gave chase and caught up to McInnis and McCoy outside the pub. McInnis and McCoy resisted arrest and the officers were forced to subdue them with closed fists and steel toe boots.

The robbers were treated for non-life threatening injuries. According to UK's Daily Mail, both men face armed robbery, theft and other charges.

Monaghan's Pub owner says the robbers must not have noticed the police precinct right across the street, where squad cars come and go during shift changes. The pub is a well-known police hangout -- even when they aren't holding retirement celebrations.

"It's kind of odd you would even attempt [a robbery]," Milani told the Daily Mail. "Officers are always in here. There was a decent amount of them."

    Love Cleese. I played a game of Chess with him in the late 80s. I was doing so well until he told me a joke. Then, after the joke while I was crackin' up.. Checkmate! I lost badly.

  • Waya Hedia

    Unflattering.. Yeah. Being a thug criminal is a bit unflattering. Let's make sure she hides that so we never have to be faced with reality again! it is sooooo harsh.

  • Ro

    me too!

  • Waya Hedia

    It isn't an embarrassment for you though. You don't have to identify with everyone of your own race. Totally unnecessary. Discourage them, humiliate them, set an example of them for your kids and everyone else, instead of feeling like you own THEIR mistakes.

  • Karla E

    That's what they get for being stupid ? Wow, that's funny but seriously glad they weren't killed by the po po's!!

  • Chicagowise

    This won't be their last robbery. They will continue until they kill someone or someone kills them. The only thing criminals respond to, is violence.

  • Allihave2say

    They're robbing a bar full of cops that's across the street from a police station and the cops had to be interrupted and notified of the robbery? The men made it outside the club before being caught? Think about it.

  • Waya Hedia

    I was so in awe of being told a joke by someone who I had so much respect and admiration for that I completely lost the game. I would have anyway though.. he's a pretty good chess player. The joke made defeat well worth it.

    A woman and her chauffeur arrive at her home and walk in...
    Woman: John, I want you to take off my coat
    John: OK ma'am.
    Woman, John? Now , take off my dress.
    John: Alright.
    Woman: John.. now.. Take off my petticoat..
    John: Yes mam
    Woman. And I NEVER want to see you wearing these things again.

    A lot of people don't realize that violent behavior isn't something that's reserved for victims that are unknown to the offender. Some violent people will victimize anyone that comes in contact with them.

  • Guess Who

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    They're lucky they didn't get killed.

  • Malcom Flex

    Hm. IMHO these fatherless black males think that everybody is scared of them, cause they live in the hood they aren't hip that some white men can kick their asses. They thought those were some pussy wm.

  • Malcom Flex

    Looks like they got less of a beat down vs. what Fist Brown did to Rhi.


    The desperation of some Americans where robbing and stealing is seen as a real way to
    Get ? ... robbing and stealing... they are lucky to be alive.

    Stupid! So the Mickey Fickey on the left got beat so bad he can't see and the other got beat so bad he looks shocked as hell!

  • ShWa

    That's what trying to get something for nothing will get, u-f*cked up.....

  • Chicagowise

    You're right. They naturally assume certain people are easy prey. One day, that misguided assumption will cost them their lives.

    Poster "man children" for: This is your brain (guy on the left). This is your brain on drugs (guy on the right). That 80s "Just Say No" campaign spearheaded by another Republican TV actor "president" urged folks to not do drugs.... yet they supplied hoods across America with them - especially places like Harlem and Baltimore (reference Showtime's, The Wire).

    Is it just me or are the stories about Black males getting arrested today's theme here? Hoping for a new trend/theme everyone, Beautiful Melaninated People. ?????????

  • We Can Do This

    Get rich quick! I hate this type. Bums!

  • ?Royalty?

    I wonder if the cops who arrested them were Scott or Irish too. ?
