Wooden sword and sorcery at Community Grocery & Candy

Early yesterday morning, an employee at Community Grocery & Candy on 14th Street near First Avenue reportedly protected his store from a robbery attempt with a wooden sword stashed behind the counter.

Per the Daily News, the suspect, identified as Zachariah Vasquez, demanded money from the register.

Instead of handing over the money, Alomari Saleh produced the sword and struck Vazquez in the head.

The report does not mention if Vasquez had any weapon.
