Clerk punches robbery suspect in Ohio. Tamala Edwards reports during Action News at 5 a.m. on October 25, 2017.

A clerk in Cincinnati took matters into his own hands when an armed man attempted to rob his convenience store.

Investigators say 52-year-old Andre Young pulled out a box cutter and tried to jump across the counter.

That's when the clerk chased Young and punched him in the eye.

Police say Young was convicted of using a bat to rob the same store in 2005.
