Robbers Learn Knife Beats BB Gun

In your Real Facts of Science update of the day, here's the tale of an Akron man who fended off two robbers with logic (and a knife):

Two teens put a gun to an Akron man's head and demanded money, then fled when their target — realizing their weapon only fired BBs — pulled out a knife.

The would-be victim, 36, told police the boys approached him about 5:30 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Lafollette Street and Burkhardt Avenue.

Police said one of the suspects put a gun to the man's head and demanded money. Instead, the man pulled out a knife and told the teens to put their ''BB gun away before they get hurt.''
