Store clerk KOs armed robber with left hook
HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. (KABC) -- An armed man tried to rob a small business in North Carolina, but he wasn't expecting the clerk to take matters into his own hands.
Surveillance video shows the gunman, 25-year-old Mostafa Hendi, walking into the We Buy Gold store in Hendersonville, N.C.
The store employee, Derek Mothershead, said Hendi came in demanding money, so he handed him the loot, then threw a quick left hook to the face to knock him out cold.
"If he wants money, get a job. Work like everybody else in this world," Mothershead said. "I was scared about the gun. When I made my mind up, I said I got to hit him with everything I've got."
Mothershead helped stop Hendi's bleeding while waiting for police to arrive.
