You know the saying, don't bring a knife to a gun fight. Well, one man in Colorado Springs didn't get the memo.

A would-be robber wielding a knife got a surprise when the victim pulled a handgun, Colorado Springs police said.

The attempted robber ran away, police said.

The incident happened just after 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Power Wash at 3730 Randall Drive, police said.

A man was sitting in his car, which he had just finished washing.

Another man walked up, pulled a knife on the victim and demanded his money, police said.

"The victim reached for what the suspect thought was a wallet, but was actually a semi-auto handgun," a police report said. "The victim pointed his gun at the suspect, who immediately fled on foot."
