Well, I take that back. The machete-wielding guy in the video at the bottom of this article looks like he made off with a nice... something.

Help the Houston Police Find This Man

Here's what the post says:

Male wanted in a shoplifting turned aggravated robbery at a retail store at 8500 Main St. on Nov. 27 As the suspect was leaving, he pulled out a machete and threatened to stab an employee with it. If you have info about this case, please call @CrimeStopHOU w/info.@houstonpolice.



What is that?

I've been trying to figure out what it is that this rascal thought was so important to steal that he turned it into aggravated assault with a weapon. If anyone can make out what that is, please let me know in the comments.

Nice Try

It looks like the employee's plan was to push that cart in front of the guy to somehow stop him, but she wisely backs away as soon as she sees the machete. It's not worth getting chopped with a machete for that neck massager, or whatever it is he stole.
