A sword-wielding robber was caught off guard when the cashier also happened to have a sword.

A Pittsburgh cashier fought off the robbers, who eventually ran away after seeing his sword, according to WPXI.

Police said the robber went behind the counter a pulled out a knife that was more than one foot long. That's when the cashier pulled out his own sword to defend himself.

“He had a sword, so he just removed the sword and attacked him. Then when he hit the sword that the dude had in his hand -- my brother hit the sword -- he ran away,” said the brother of the cashier.
