BRENTWOOD, N.Y. — A fearless — or plain crazy — Long Island deli clerk dodged a bullet, then grabbed a machete and bravely chased a pistol-packing thug from the store, Suffolk cops said Monday.

Shocking surveillance video of the Sept. 25 incident shows the masked gunman as he burst through the door of the Stop & Shop Deli on Crooked Hill Road in Brentwood about 8 p.m. and pointed a semi-automatic .22 caliber handgun at the clerk.

The cool-headed employee then pulled a machete from under the counter and chased the feckless robber out of the store and through the parking lot.
