DAYTONA BEACH, Florida (WKMG) - A Daytona Beach restaurant worker fought off a burglar early Monday morning with a sword and a beer bottle, authorities say.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports Anthony Brisbane was working at Captain Steamer's Oyster Bar at 5:20 a.m. when he found a masked man in the kitchen area of the eatery at 1500 S. Atlantic Avenue.
Brisbane armed himself with a sword with a broken handle and pressed the sword into the suspect's stomach, police said.
The suspect, identified as 29-year-old Trevor Pufall said, "Don't kill me. Don't kill me," as Brisbane called authorities, police said. Pufall, armed with a tire iron, then struck Brisbane three times on the head.
Pufall then dropped his tire iron and he and Brisbane fought over the sword. Brisbane then shoved Pufall to the floor and slammed a beer bottle into his head, police said.
Brisbane then grabbed a screwdriver, pointed it at Pufall's neck and walked him outside to the front of the restaurant. By then, police had arrived on scene, the News-Journal reports.
Both men were taken to Halifax Health Medical Center. Pufall will be taken to jail upon his release on burglary charges.
