VIDEO: New Bedford store owner beats robber with stick, metal display shelf
NEW BEDFORD (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - A New Bedford store owner got by with a little help from his friends and his neighbors after two masked robbers broke attempted to rob his store on Friday night.
Surveillance video captured the wild fight and shows the store owner beating one of the robbers with a bat. When he loses the bat, he uses a metal display case shelf to hit the suspect.
Neighbors rushed to the scene when they heard the commotion and joined in the fight.
One of the suspects was taken into custody; however, the other suspect remains at large.
The St. Elias Mini Market had been robbed at knifepoint earlier this week.
