An 89-year-old Washington state storekeeper says she swatted at a sword-wielding robber with a golf club after he pushed her to the ground.

KREM-TV reports  that Miyo Koba’s son says she was not hurt in the weekend scuffle in Moses Lake. Police recovered the cash register taken Sunday from Frank’s Superette.

Police say the intruder was armed with a 3-foot-long sword and rode away on a BMX bike.

Koba said the robber ordered his mother to open the till and she refused.

Koba says she was pushed as he fled and she fell down. She then grabbed a golf club that was behind the counter and tried to swing at his head. She couldn’t reach, so she says she settled for hitting his legs.

Police are still searching for the man.
