Snow brush season is well under way here in Upstate New York. In Rochester last night, a snow brush wielding resident fought off an armed robber.
Police in Rochester say a man brushing snow off his car was shot during a robbery attempt Monday evening.
Investigators say the victim had just left a bar at the corner of Delmar Street and Otis Street and was cleaning off his car when he was approached by the suspect and robbed at gunpoint.
Police say the victim fought off his attacker with his snow brush, but was shot in the ankle.
Now that the ubiquitous winter tool has been successfully used as a weapon, expect Chuckles Schumer to soon stand before the cameras demanding federal snow brush registration.
