NC: Vet uses Cane to Stop Robber with Fake AK47
Brooks said, however, that he immediately realized the AK-47 the would-be robber was brandishing wasn't real.
"This thing was wood almost all the way up to the end of the barrel. No trigger guard, no trigger," he said. "All the working parts were missing, so I just told the girls, 'Don't give him anything. That's a fake gun.'" 1
"Well, I'm for real," the robber said as he swung around and pointed the weapon at Brooks.
"I showed him how real I was," Brooks said Friday with a chuckle. "I hit him in the nose with my cane."
The two then engaged in a bizarre duel, using a cane and a phony firearm.
