MOSES LAKE, Wash. (AP) - An 89-year-old Moses Lake, Washington, storekeeper says she refused to open a cash register for a weekend robber and swatted him in the legs with a golf club after he pushed her to the ground.

KREM-TV reports (https://is.gd/FTFVuX ) that Miyo Koba’s son says she was not hurt. They later recovered the cash register taken Sunday from Frank’s Superette.

Police say the intruder was armed with a 3-foot-long sword and rode away on a BMX bike.

Koba said he ordered her to open the till and she refused.

She says the man pushed her slightly to get away.

Koba says she fell down, then sat up and grabbed a golf club that was behind the counter.

She tried to swing the club and hit the robber’s head but couldn’t reach that high, so she says she settled for hitting his legs.

Police were still searching for the man Tuesday.
