Pittsburgh store owner with giant sword chases off machete-wielding robbers (VIDEO)
The whole encounter, worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster, was captured on surveillance video.
A pair of would-be robbers, who turned out to be juveniles, ran into Perry Market as the owner was closing on Friday night. One of them went behind the counter and demanded money, WPXI-TV in Pittsburgh reported. Police said the teen produced a large silver knife over one foot long.
“He was like, ‘Stay away. Give me money. Give me money,’” M.C. Hydare, the brother of the cashier, told Channel 11.
Both teens were able to get away. Police told WPXI they didn't steal anything. One of them dropped some T-shirts he was trying to take as he ran out the door.
“I just want to give a message to them: Don’t try this. You can have money in a better way. Not this,” Hydare said. “Please stay away. Go and find work somewhere.”
