Ninja teens try to rob store, clerk fights back with sword

Machete-Armed Thieves Get Surprise

Two teens dressed like ninjas, wearing black clothes, masks, and carrying machetes, busted into Perry Market in Pittsburgh, PA on Friday night.

To their surprise, the store's clerk fought back with a weapon of his own. He took out a sword to defend himself.

The frightened robbers only made off with a few t-shirts, as they ran away into the night. Police are still looking for the machete wielding suspects.

According to the NY Daily News, "the man who allegedly held up the customer is described as 6 feet tall, 160 pounds, wearing a hoodie and black pants. The robber who jumped behind the counter was wearing a red ski cap, a black shirt and black pants."
