Armed Robber crashes party, gets wine, cheese and hugs

Amy D spotted this bizarre tale of a DC gunman who showed up at a late dinner party. He pointed a gun at a 14 year old girl and demanded money. They offered wine and he gave a favorable review to their Chateau Malescot St-Exupery - "Damn, that's good wine."
The girl's father, Michael Rabdau, 51, told the intruder to take the whole glass, and Rowan offered him the whole bottle.

The robber, with his hood down, took another sip and a bite of Camembert cheese. He put the gun in his sweatpants.

The story then turns even more bizarre.

"I think I may have come to the wrong house," he said before apologizing. "Can I get a hug?"

Rowan, who works at her children's school and lives in Falls Church, Va., stood up and wrapped her arms around the armed man. The four other guests followed.

"Can we have a group hug?" the man asked. The five adults complied.

The man walked away a few moments later with the crystal wine glass in hand.
Nothing was stolen except for the wine glass.
