A would-be bandit apparently never heard the idiom “never bring a knife to a gunfight.”
According to police, a man hoping to rob a pharmacy in Bristol Township, Pa., on Wednesday night pulled a knife, struggled with a clerk and was shot by a second clerk.
The suspect was taken to the hospital by the Levittown-Fairless Hills Rescue Squad. The clerks weren’t injured, and police said the clerk who owns the firearm has a license to carry it.
The robber will be facing charges when he recovers.Â Â This has even gotten coverage in New Jersey.Â I don’t see that the clerk had any other choice.Â Once you start grappling with someone who has a knife, you’re more likely than not going to get cut.
