Thief Uses Sword To Rob Convenience Store

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police in New York state said they are searching for a man who held up a convenience store by holding a sword up to the clerk`s throat.

Buffalo police said the robber held the sword up to the throat of the clerk at A-Plus Mini Mart early Tuesday and fled to the parking lot with an undisclosed amount of cash, The Buffalo News reported Tuesday.

Investigators are searching for the suspect, described as a black man standing at 6 feet, 4 inches tall and weighing about 300 pounds.

UPI

When a 6 feet, 4 inches tall robber who weighs about 300 pounds walks into a convenience store, all he needs to do is say, "Give me all your money or I will beat you up."

Brandishing a sword is superfluous, he could merely wave a small pocket knife.

I commend the clerk for following the robber to the parking lot, and hitting him on his shoulder with a baseball bat.

The cops aren`t armed with baseball bats or swords, but guns. If they find this loser I hope they give him a good scare.
