VIDEO OF ASSAULT: Store Clerk Fights Off Robber with an Ax

October 23, 2007 -- Suffolk County police say a feisty Long Island store clerk refused a gunman's demands for money and instead chased him out with an ax. The suspect entered the Southhaven Convenience store shortly after 8 p.m. Saturday, wearing a mask and demanding money.The clerk - 5-foot-4 Hafize Sahim (Ha-feeze Sa-HEEM) - retrieved the ax from under the counter and began swinging it, chasing the man out of the store empty-handed. The 27-year-old Sahim told reporters Tuesday that she thought the gun was a fake, which is why she fought back.
