Man uses Klingon weapon to rob store
A man in Colorado Springs was seen robbing several gas stations with a Klingon sword.
Both clerks described the weapon as a Star Trek Klingon-type sword, called a "bat'leth."Neither clerk was injured in the robberies.
The Startrek.com Web site describes the Klingon weapon as crescent-shaped and about a yard long. However, the weapon that the man was wielding appears to be smaller than that. The bat'leth has points on both ends, two points in between and a handle on the outside.
Police said they don't know if the sword used by the robber was made of metal.
They do however, know that the robber is weird.
