Machete-Wielding Clerk Chases Gun-Toting Robber Out of Store


They say never bring a knife to a gun fight. But as a Long Island convenience store clerk proved recently, a machete is something else entirely. During an armed hold-up at the Stop & Shop Deli on Crooked Hill Road in Brentwood, NY, a 24-year-old part-time clerk dodged a bullet and then chased the would-be crook out the door, as the New York Post reported.

You might run, too, if you faced a really angry person swinging a long sharp blade over his head while moving toward you.
