I doubt the robber is going to try to steal from that store anymore.
BROOKHAVEN, N.Y. (CBS) ― The surveillance video is stunning -- a tiny clerk defending her store from an armed robber by brandishing an axe.
She stands less than 5-feet tall and weighs only 90 pounds, but Hafize Sahin can wield an axe like Paul Bunyan.
"Here is a handgun, he's demanding money, and now she's pulling out the axe," said Det. Lt. Edward Kelly of the Suffolk County Police Department. "She's chasing him out of the store."
Sahin's coworker, Kevin Klein, was stunned by her reaction.
"She was just hysterical crying, but she beat the guy off," Klein said. "The guy ran out. He was about 6-feet-2!"
