CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Police say two homeless men are in custody after they tried to rob a man at a Concord business who fended off the assault with help from a glass cat statue.

Office worker Daniel Lord told police he knew one of the two men who attempted to rob him shortly before 6 a.m. Monday.

Police say 28-year-old Eric Todd displayed a 6-inch knife and demanded cash. Todd and 25-year-old Justin Briggs, who are considered homeless, were charged with robbery.

The Concord Monitor (https://bit.ly/2bOBQTU ) reports that during the robbery attempt one of the assailants picked up a glass cat statue and threw it at Lord, who deflected the statue before swinging it at the alleged assailants.

It could not immediately be determined if Todd and Briggs had lawyers.
