It’s bad enough when someone steals your phone. When that person has a machete, though, it can get even worse. In Sherwood Park, one person was at the unfortunate end of a phone robbery. Thankfully, the man wasn’t hurt.

Nathan Flach, a 20 year old, approached the victim and asked to use his phone. Being the kind citizen that he is, the man obliged. Flach didn’t give the phone back, though. The man demanded his phone back, but Flach had other ideas. He reached into his backpack and pulled out a machete.

Frightened, the victim ran into a store at the Sherwood Park Mall and asked employees to call the RCMP. They had found Flach and placed him under arrest. Nobody was harmed in the incident, and the robbery victim was able to get his phone back once Mounties intervened.
