According to police, the assailant walked into the Lucky Seven Grocery store Tuesday just before noon, and pointed a knife at the 24-year-old clerk.

In response, the clerk pulled out a sword he kept behind the counter, police Detective Captain Steven Vicente said. The knife-wielding man fled the County Street store.

The clerk was unharmed and no money was taken.

Police describe the assailant as a white male approximately 40years old, 5 feet 9 inches, heavy build, with a brown mustache. He was last seen wearing an olive green winter coat, blue jeans, and white and blue sneakers.

Anyone with information is asked to contact New Bedford Police.
