If one knife is good, two is apparently better – or so thought Hunter Hu, owner of a noodle restaurant in Brisbane, Australia.
A 19-year-old man, carrying a kitchen knife, tucked in his pants, allegedly confronted Hunter Hu, 46, on Thursday afternoon.
The intruder passed a note over the counter demanding money.
Instead of getting cash from the till, the restaurant owner from Brisbane’s north returned with the two meat cleavers.
Closed-circuit TV footage has captured the moment Mr Hu chased the would-be thief from his Master Noodle business at Kedron.
‘You have one knife? I have two,’ he told Seven News on Saturday.
The teenage intruder then ran across six lanes of traffic at Gympie Road, during peak hour, to Hungry Jacks.
He was arrested a short time later at the fast food diner after witnesses reported seeing him carry a weapon, Queensland police said.
