The cashier at a Tel Aviv branch of the Tiv Ta'am supermarket chain was almost alone in the store and was having a quiet night when suddenly a man pulled out a knife and demanded that she open the cash register and hand over the contents, reports www.local.co.il. But before the frightened cashier could comply, the store's butcher realized that a robbery was taking place and leapt to the rescue, grappling with the knife-wielding bandit. The thief quickly gained the upper hand and pushed the butcher into the supermarket's refrigerator, locking the door on him. He then again demanded that the cashier give him money, but although unrefrigerated she was too frozen with fear to move, and the thief gave up and fled the scene without taking anything. Police are now investigating the case.
