Clerks With Machete, Handgun Can’t Stop Robbers With AK-47

Two men, one armed with an AK-47 assault rifle, robbed a Vista market but not before taking on two clerks, one of them armed with a machete.

Sheriff’s deputies said the suspects walked into the El Leno Market on South Santa Fe Avenue on Thursday night. One jumped over the counter and grabbed a bag with money in it.

Meanwhile, a clerk pulled out a machete, and another employee took out a handgun and fired a shot into the ceiling.

The robbers were able to get away with about $3,500, police said, and no one was hurt.
