    Would-Be Bank Robber in Fall River Gets Cold Feet, Rips Up Note
    Fall River Police

    Police in Massachusetts are looking for a woman they say intended to rob a bank but got cold feet and left without a penny.

    Fall River police tell the Herald News the woman walked into the Fall River Municipal Credit Union on Monday afternoon and approached a teller.

    Police say the woman hesitated, told the teller "give me a minute," and went to a counter and wrote on a piece of paper.

    But she ripped up the note, dropped the pieces in the trash and walked out.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
