Samurai Sword Used In New Bedford Hold-up
It's true. New Bedford police say two armed men held up the Petro Mart on Coggesall Street with a 3-foot Samurai sword last weekend.
There's surveillance video that shows the armed man threatening the clerk with a kitchen knife. When the clerk fought back, the robber pulled the sword from his waistband, while the other man took cash, cigarettes and rolling papers before leaving the store.
