South Carolina clerk fights back, thwarts attempted robbery

RICHLAND CO., S.C. -- Many of us enjoying seeing the bad guys get beat up.

Here is a good example of that in South Carolina.

Police have just released the surveillance video from a robbery in July.

Here you can see the suspect paying for a pack of Oreos.

Then he reaches over the counter and tried to grab money from the register.

The clerk fought back, even throwing cookies at his head as he ran out.

"I just shut the register on his fingers. He pushed it back open and kind of hit me in the middle of the chest, and all I could think about was 'This man just hit me'. So, I just started wailing at the back of his head," said Store Manager Chanel Thomas.

Right now, the crook is still on the run.
