    Police say a priest caught a man red-handed stealing from a church in Dover, New Hampshire, leading to criminal charges.

    Police say 34-year-old Robert Bowman is charged with two counts of burglary.

    He's accused of stealing money and gift cards from St. Joseph's Church and Rectory twice, once in June and once on Sept. 2. Bowman allegedly ran off before police arrived at the church. He was released on a personal recognizance bail after turning himself in.

    The Associated Press could not find a phone number for Bowman, and it was unknown if he has a lawyer. He's due to be arraigned on Sept. 20.

    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.
