Ohio shop's gorilla mascot attacked by banana

Submitted By AP Wire Service

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio (AP), Jul 08 - The manager of a cell phone store in Ohio called 911 to report a gorilla had been attacked by a banana.

The Wireless Center in Strongsville, near Cleveland, advertises at curbside with a man in a gorilla suit. Manager Brandon Parham says he was watching last week as a kid dressed as a banana emerged from some bushes and took a flying leap at the store mascot.

Parham says the attacker looked like a Spartan from the movie ``300'' - except he was a banana.

The gorilla was knocked down but got back up, adjusted his head and went back to work.

WJW-TV reports the banana split - running down the street with other teens.

Police think it was a prank. They weren't able to find the offending fruit.
