The proprietor of Joe's Carryout in Van Buren, Ohio, had
been the victim of an attempted robbery before--in fact, only 10
days earlier. In that incident, Joe Tooley's stalling tactics, and
the unexpected presence of his wife, caused the two masked, armed
bandits to flee. This time, a man walked in and told Tooley to fill
a bag with cash. When Tooley asked why he should, the bandit
replied that he would shoot Tooley if he didn't comply. Unable to
open one of his registers, Tooley took an antique display gun off
the wall and told the robber he would be shot instead. Apparently
unwilling to take the risk, the man fled on foot--without any money.
