Imagine you're working the counter at a local Philadelphia Wawa convenience store. As you're standing there, a man with a yellow towel on his head, sunglasses and rubber gloves walks in. It's not Halloween. He demands cash and tugs at his waist band.

If you're having a hard time imagining it, here's how it actually looked on October 23:

But the story gets even better. One of the clerks wasn't buying the thief's story. His response to the masked man according to WTXF-TV? "Show me the gun."

That's when the crook took out a curved piece of metal and started toward the employee. But that was the wrong move: the clerk quickly wound up his fist and began fighting back, repeatedly striking the man and putting him on the ground before fellow employees separated the two.

Appearing dazed and now de-masked, the man gets up and manages to get away, driving off in a BMW with no plates.

Police are now looking for him.

Take a look at the surveillance video and if you live in the Philadelphia area, you may want to check the pictures from your Halloween party to see if he looks familiar:
