Shoe store clerk fights off armed robber

An armed robber walked away empty handed Tuesday night when a shoe store clerk fought back.

Around 8 p.m. Tuesday, a man wearing a gray ski mask and armed with a knife entered the Payless Shoe Source on North Memorial Parkway.

According to officers, the robber told the clerk, "This is a stick up."

Then the clerk retorted, "You're not robbing this store." Officers say she rammed him repeatedly with a shoe cart until the masked man ran away.

He didn't get any cash or shoes.

Police are still looking for the robber.
