Swept Away: Would-Be Robber Chased Away With Broom

Police in Manchester, New Hampshire are searching for a man who allegedly attempted to rob a store only to be chased away with a broom.

The owners of Crosstown Variety told police that the man walked into the store on Saturday night, pulled out a knife and said, “Give me all your money, now!”

Instead, one of the owners picked up a broom and demanded the man leave, threatening to call the police. The suspect left with nothing.

Police continue to search for the suspect, and ask anyone with information to call 603-668-8711.
