Seeing a night club robbery in progress, Ken Faulkner of Emeryville, Calif., stopped his car, got a pistol from a card room next door and returned in time to fire a warning shot at a man running out of the club. The man pulled a dagger with a 6" blade but was disarmed by a night club customer. Police recovered $132 taken from the club's bartender and held the man on charges of armed robbery, carrying a concealed arm and violation of probation.
