ALFRETON, England, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- Santa Claus is known for entering through chimneys, but British police said a not-so-jolly St. Nick climbed in a KFC drive-through window and demanded cash.

Police said the "Bad Santa" was armed with a large knife instead of a sack of toys Saturday night when he climbed through the drive-through window of the KFC in Alfreton, England, and demanded access to the eatery's safe.

"A man dressed as Santa Claus entered the building through the drive-through window and demanded access to the safe," a Derbyshire police spokesman told the Derby Telegraph. "He has reinforced that with a knife. Staff have quite rightly backed off and allowed him that and he has then exited the scene with a quantity of money."

The spokesman said the suspect was decked out in festive apparel during the incident.

"He was wearing a red hat, red jacket and a black top," the spokesman said. "He also had red trousers with a Santa theme and black trainers on."

KFC said no one was hurt during the incident and employees are being offered "any support they need."
