BRENTWOOD, N.Y. (AP) -- It was machete versus gun during a convenience store robbery -- and the machete wins.

Police on New York's Long Island have released surveillance video of an attempted robbery.

A would-be bandit points a .22 caliber handgun at the shopkeeper.

Then the clerk pulls a weapon of his own, a machete from under the counter.

The crook ran away without taking anything.

Investigators say they've been getting tips since the video was released. But so far no one has been busted.
