Man robs gas station with pool cue, knife

Man attacked with broom, concrete block
A man has been attacked with a broom and a concrete block during a violent home invasion in central Queensland.
Three men knocked on the door of the 40-year-old victim's residence on Harbour Road, Mackay, about 8pm (AEST) on Sunday, police said.
They attempted to assault the man when he opened the door, but police said the victim frightened them off with a large knife.
The men later returned armed with a concrete block and a broom and forced their way into the house.
Police said one man threw the concrete block at the victim, causing a superficial cut and bruising.
Another man attacked him with the broom, causing a serious eye injury that required surgery.
Police said the offenders then left, assaulting a witness on their way out.
They were last seen driving away in a silver hatchback.
The offenders were described as being of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander appearance and in their early 20s.
Stick attacks (and defenses) are more common than some people think!
Indeed they are. The 2003 FBI Uniform Crime Report stated that the most common weapons used in the commission of crimes were guns, knives and some type of club (stick).
They are a ranged weapon that is relatively easy to find/improvise...for the good guys and the bad guys.
I remember a story that Mike "DogZilla" Tibbits from the Dog Brothers told us about that occured between two inmates. One guy was mopping the floor while he was attacked, instead of flipping the broom over he stomped on the mop end and broke it off which created a jagged end. He then used it to defend himself, he thrusted the jagged end towards the face of his attacker and it went through his mouth and out his cheek or something like that pretty close to that. Guro Crafty also mentions the story in their staff DVD.
