Machete-Wielding Clerk Fights Off Robber
A store clerk in the eastern US state of New York thwarted an armed robbery attempt when he refused to hand over money to a gunman without a fight. 
 
Surveillance video released Monday by Suffolk County police shows a masked man trying to rob the store and even firing a warning shot.  But instead of complying, the clerk reached under the counter to pull out a giant machete.
 
The robber managed to escape. 
 
The incident took place on September 25.  Police are still looking for the suspect.
