FOREST PARK, Ohio -- Here's one suspected robber who's watched too many cheesy movies. 

"We can do this the easy way or the hard way," Andre Young allegedly told the clerk at the Speedway gas station in Forest Park, Ohio while waving a box cutter at him on Monday.

The scenario went all wrong for the would-be robber as the clerk swiftly knocked him unconscious, as shown in the dramatic surveillance video in the player above.

Young, 52, of Cincinnati, appeared in court Tuesday morning to face charges of aggravated robbery and felonious assault. He was ordered held on a $175,000 bond.
