Two bodega owners in Bay Ridge fought off a robbery earlier this week by taking justice into their own hands...with machetes. The Post reports that when three thieves tried to rob the S & J Meat Market Monday of $2,000 in cigarettes, brothers and co-owners Mohammed and Sammy Othman confronted them with foot-and-a-half-long machetes. "My knife's bigger than yours!" Sammy yelled at one of the robbers who had pulled a four-inch blade. After containing two of the thieves with the machete, Mohammed was able to lead police to the third by answering the suspect's cell phone, which was left behind at the bodega. He answered pretending to be one of the perp's cohorts and asked where he was. The suspect told him and was quickly apprehended by police.
