Clerk rifle-whips bandit – with bandit’s gun

A would-be bandit carrying a rifle tried to rob a Salt Lake City convenience store Monday, only to be beaten with his own gun when the clerk fought back.

The 38-year-old man entered the EZ Mart near 600 North and 200 West around 2:15 p.m. and demanded money.

The clerk and the man began fighting, knocking money and store items across the counter, police reported.

The clerk then grabbed the rifle and began beating the would-be robber. Police arrived and arrested the 38-year-old man.

The clerk suffered chest pains and was taken to a local hospital as a precaution.
