Clerk uses scissors to chase robbers out of store in Austin

AUSTIN, Minn. (FOX 47) -- A clerk at an Austin cell phone store used scissors to chase two robbers out of the store.

It happened shortly before 7:30 p.m. Friday night at the business at 1002 West Oakland Ave.

Police say two men walked in and one approached the counter with a black hand gun and demanded money. That's when police say the cashier picked up a pair of scissors and reportedly stabbed the man somewhere on the left arm.

Both men took off and were reported running northbound on 10th Street.

Police are looking for suspects.
