    [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.

    Gouldsboro Fire Department Capt. Edward Pontbriand said a sedan and a pickup crashed somewhere near 9:30 a.m. Christmas morning.

    “There’s no skid marks out on the scene, so when they hit, it was a high impact accident. Head on," said Pontbriand. "It was a big hit.”

    Steuben, Sullivan, Gouldsboro, and Winter Harbor fire departments were called to the scene. The Hancock County Sheriff’s Department, Gouldsboro PD, and State Police also helped with the crash.
