A man in Houston attempted to rob a hotel while carrying a rifle, but appeared to be shocked when the hotel clerk pulled out a handgun of her own.
The incident happened on Jan. 16 when a man entered the hotel lobby.
Houston police say that the suspect went to the counter with a rifle and demanded that a hotel clerk give him money from a cash drawer.
As the hotel clerk was being held at gunpoint with the rifle, police say that she pulled out a handgun of her own and pointed it at the suspect, who then fled the scene.
