    13 Cars Vandalized With Swastikas, Lewd Images at University of Rhode Island

    Police at the University of Rhode Island say swastikas and lewd images have been carved into more than a dozen cars in the past two weeks.

    Police say the images have been found on 13 cars at the Kingston campus since April 4. Officers have been reviewing surveillance footage and patrolling parking lots, but have not identified any suspects.

    The school says it condemns all vandalism but said "the hateful and offensive nature of these incidents deserves the strongest repudiation.''

    Anyone with information is asked to call police.

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
