More proof of why we need a good local newspaper (Tony):
From The Kansas City Star:
Armed KC robber loses fight with Starbucks manager
A Starbucks manager in Kansas City thwarted a robbery Sunday night by disarming the gunman and slashing him with a box cutter.
The 30-year-old suspect showed up at a hospital for treatment of a cut to his chest. After being released from the hospital, he was booked into jail.
The failed holdup occurred about 10:45 p.m. at the coffee house at 4140 Main St. The suspect walked into the back office where the manager was counting money and told the manager to get into a freezer. The manager refused and fought the suspect, who hit the manager in the head with the butt of his gun. The manager pulled a box cutter out of his pocket and cut the suspect. The manager took the gun away and shoved the suspect out the door.
The manager suffered a cut above his eye, which was closed with glue at a hospital.
As I said, stupid move, as the police would tell him--the manager--but fortunately it turned out well.
Good on ya', mate.
Everyone's tired of taking this kind of stupid crap, wherever it happens.
