MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Police say a store clerk in Manchester, New Hampshire, used a large stick to chase off a knife-wielding man demanding cash and later confronted him again outside the store.

Police said Abdul Chaudary at the AMT Market raised the stick over his head and the man fled without any cash Tuesday night. He continued to chase the man outside and even struck him once. Chaudary’s friend called 911.

A few minutes later, the man returned and Chaudary went out to confront him. Police arrived at about the same time and arrested the man, identified as 34-year-old Leo Rochon of Manchester.

Rochon was being arraigned Wednesday on charges of attempted robbery and falsifying evidence; it wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.
