Worker in NJ store scuffles with burglar

LINDEN, N.J. - November 2, 2011

Fred Paz was closing up Tuesday night at Kwik Check Cashing in Linden when he says the man dropped down from the ceiling and waved his arm in a stabbing motion.

Paz told The Star-Ledger of Newark he struck the intruder in the face with a fire extinguisher and sprayed him with foam.

The 30-year-old says he triggered the alarm as he ran from the store and locked the burglar inside.

The suspect was gone when police arrived.
