“He said, ‘I can shoot you with a gun, give me money,'” Mann told ABC Philly.
After the man pulled a knife on Mann, there was a struggle which left his hand slashed. The robber absconded with $70.
Mann took himself to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital to have his wound treated, where investigators met him and searched his car for evidence.
