Man Attempts To Rob Shop With Sword; But Shopkeeper Pulls Out A Huge Scimitar
A sword-wielding robber found himself fighting for his life after a shopkeeper pulled out a massive scimitar and fought back.
The shopkeeper in Perry Market in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, was faced with the would-be robbers who had foot-long knives.
One aimed it at a customer while the second jumped behind the counter and threatened the clerk, demanding cash. But he refused to give in, instead taking out his own, much bigger sword.
It’s not clear if he uttered Crocodile Dundee’s famous words ‘that’s not a knife, that’s a knife’.
The shopkeeper’s brother, M C Hydare said, ‘He hit the sword that the dude had in his hand – my brother hit the sword – he ran away.
‘I just want to give a message to them: Don’t try this. You can have money in a better way. Not this. Please stay away. Go and find work somewhere.’
