Burglar flees from Thor

Via Boing Boing:

On New Year's Eve in Edinburgh, Scotland, Torvald Alexander went to a fancy dress party as Thor, the Norse god of Thunder.

When he returned home from the party, he found that a man had broken into his house and was in the process of rifling his desk.

According to the Telegraph, Alexander said, "As soon as he saw me his eyes went wide with terror.
He looked like he had had a few drinks and decided to do a late night break in, but he hadn't counted on the God of Thunder living here."

The Telegraph continues:

"Mr Alexander said that the burglar had not managed to steal anything, but had left his shoes at the scene.

"He said: 'He had obviously taken off his shoes to creep about in silence, but when he saw me he just jumped out of the window in his socks. . .

"Mr Alexander said he was contacting police and was going to hand over the burglar's shoes in the hope police can trace him.
