An armed robber held up a petrol station in the US and then went back to ask for directions. The 22-year-old man, from Vancouver, Washington state, got away with cash after holding up staff at knifepoint. After a 100 mph chase through winding roads, the man lost his pursuers but had no idea where he was. He pulled into a petrol station to ask directions to Seattle, unaware it was the same one he’d just robbed.
