Clerk Foils Robbery With Sword

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A clerk in New Bedford turned the tables during a convenience store robbery.

When the would-be robber pulled out his knife, clerk Brian Patel pulled out a sword.

Patel says the robber`s knife was about eight inches long.
Patel didn`t hesitate to reach under the counter and respond with his sword, about three feet long, that sent the robber running empty handed."

The would-be robber must have felt like a dude doing his business when adult movie star Ron Jeremy uses the urinal next to him.

The suspect apparently hasn`t mastered Robbery 101: You don`t bring a pocket knife to a sword fight.

I hope the convenience store clerk also keeps a shotgun under the counter, if the next robber pulls out a gun the biggest sword in the world isn`t going to do much good.

To add insult to injury a customer gave the suspect a swift kick in the ass as he was fleeing the store.
