    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.

    The road where the crash occurred, however, is busy and difficult to navigate on a bike, according to local cyclists.

    "You always have to pay attention, no matter what. To every car, every detail, everybody walking by you... it doesn't matter what it is," Max Singer, a local cyclist, said.
