Man Attempts to Steal Video Game Console

WILMINGTON - People across the country waited in line for days to get their hands on the new Playstation 3, but one man apparently didn't want to wait or pay.

A man tried to steal the video game console from the Babbage's store at Independence Mall, according to a police report.

The man was inside the store, also known as The Game Stop, when the store was closing.

He had a blunt object in the waistband of his pants and told store employees he would not leave without a Playstation 3.

The man did not get away with the video game console, which is valued at several hundred dollars, but police say they will charge him with armed robbery because he had a weapon.
