    NBC 4 New York

    Police in Maine say Tasers didn't stop a habitual offender from evading arrest. They say the man escaped officers' grasp, jumped out a window and ran barefoot into the woods during a thunderstorm.

    The York Police Department said it's searching for Corey W. Paradise, who's wanted on outstanding warrants.

    Police said an officer spotted Paradise driving on Saturday and found his car parked at a construction site.

    They say he resisted arrest and managed to escape even though officers used their stun guns. Police say the search was hampered by thunderstorms.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    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.
