Posted May 12th, 2014 @ 8:53am by 1310 WIBA/Madison Police

A 43 year old Madison man got a little more than he bargained for when he tried robbing a bar on Madison's East Side early Monday morning.

Police say the guy was armed with a 31 inch pipe when he burst into the Alchemy Cafe on Atwood Avenue, just after 1 a.m.

A patron took the suspect down and held him until police arrived. The suspect was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries and then taken to jail.
