Clerk scares robber away w/feather duster

December 11, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
A machete-wielding suspect was no match for a store clerk armed with a feather duster at Veronica's mini-mart in Massachusetts.

Waltham police released surveillance video of a robber at a convenience store who pulled out a machete, swung it a few times and ordered the clerk to fill a bag with money. The clerk then pulled out a feather duster.

Jackeey Patel said that was enough to scare off the suspect.

There were no reports of any injuries.
