Security Gourd: Delivery Man Foils Robbery With Squash

A delivery man in New Hampshire found a new way to squash crime.

When a crook attempted to rob a corner store in Manchester, a worker delivering food to the shop stopped the perp with the closest weapon he could find -- a squash.

According to, the strange incident occurred around 11:30 a.m. Oct. 30 when suspect Sean Cullen, 25, entered the Hillsborough Market and passed a note to a shopkeeper reading: "Give me your money, or you're going to die."
