Machete-wielding gas station clerk fights off two robbers

While it’s said, “Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight,” bringing a machete to a knife fight worked for this brave gas station clerk.



Sunday, Huntsville Police confirmed Laney Nicholson, 33, and Seth Holcomb, 32, were both arrested after attempting to rob the Conoco on Pulaski Pike.




Authorities said Holcomb entered the gas station and started to buy something, going back and forth to his car several times before pulling a large knife on the clerk and demanding cash.

Holcomb tried to leave the store, but authorities said the clerk auto-locked the door and pulled a bigger knife, a machete, on Holcomb. The two parties got into a knife fight, tearing up much of the store in the process.




Holcomb and Nicholson drove off, and Huntsville Police stopped their vehicle and detained both without any further incident a short time later.
