Salem Police are not amused by a shoplifter who sprayed a Home Depot employee's face with Silly String before making his getaway.

According to a Police report, the employee confronted three males Sunday evening who were leaving the store pushing a shopping cart full of items without paying.

The worker tells police that one of the suspects reached for his waistband insinuating that he had a gun.  

One of the other suspects pulled a knife, then pulled out an aerosol can of Silly String, spraying the flexible, colored plastic onto the face of the worker.

The trio then fled from the State Street Store with the stolen goods, in a dark-colored sedan.
