Sword-wielding robber thwarted at restaurant, The Las Vegas Review Journal, Las Vegas, Nev. 08/21/12

Thursday, August 23, 2012

A masked man armed with a samurai sword entered a Dairy Queen in Las Vegas, Nev. and attempted to rob the store. 20-year-old Michael Wehbe was working the cash register when the armed robber began hacking at it with the sword and demanding money. The clerk’s brother, 23-year-old Christian Wehbe, was in the back of the store, but when he saw the criminal on a surveillance camera he retrieved a 9mm pistol and rushed to help his brother. Once in the front of the store, Christian shot the robber, who later died at a local hospital. (The Las Vegas Review Journal, Las Vegas, Nev. 08/21/12)
