A routine snack-snatching turned violent on Tuesday when a Detroit man confronted a potato chip thief and was shot in the groin, WXYZ reports.

Authorities say the 59-year-old victim was walking outside a McDonald’s when a stranger grabbed a bag of potato chips out of his hands. The Detroit News reports the man then told the suspect, “Yo, man, give me back my chips,” and took the chips back.

“The suspect produced a weapon, shot him and fled the scene,” a police spokesperson told WWJ-TV.

The victim was subsequently taken to a nearby hospital, where he’s listed in stable condition. He is reportedly expected to recover.

According to police, the gunman escaped with the potato chips.
