A convenience store cashier in Pittsburgh was defiant when a machete-wielding robber entered the store and headed towards the counter. The last thing the masked individual would have expected was for the cashier to have his own, larger sword, to hand and ready to use.

The cashier, named as Jewad Hayih, proceeded to chase the machete-wielding youngster along with his unarmed accomplice out of the store.

Watch the dramatic CCTV footage below.

It is evident from the footage above that Hayih totally channelled his inner Crocodile Dundee.

It is reported that the teenager’s knife was over one foot long; and that both suspects were able to escape.

According to RT, the cashier’s brother has delivered a message to the pair of wannabe robbers: “Don’t try this. You can have money in a better way. Not this, please stay away. Go and find work somewhere.”
