Brave belly dancer "had the bigger knife"

When a would-be robber tried to steal the purse of Yuma, Arizona belly dance instructor Zarmineh Moody, he got a big surprise: her 25-inch Turkish scimitar trumped his knife.

“It was one of the weirdest things, one of those things you only see on TV,” said dancer Zarmineh Moody. “I guess it was like the police officer said: I had the bigger knife.”
