An unidentified man got a beating he hadn't bargained for on Monday evening in a Berlin bordello. When he tried to rob the establishment the madame forced him out with a sound thrashing.

The man entered the Puff, or brothel, with his gun drawn in hopes of stealing the day's take, but the 49-year-old madame fought him off fiercely, daily Express reported on Tuesday.

The unlucky and slightly injured fellow then fled the Pannierstraße house without his booty, according to the paper.
