Caught On Tape: Woman Fights Thug

Police in Washington state are looking for the man who stabbed a motel clerk three-times last week.

The dramatic incident was caught on surveillance tape.

Tammarie Jones, a 41-year-old grandmother, was behind the front desk of a motel in Kent, Wash. Tuesday night when a man wielding a huge knife and wearing a knit cap to cover his face leapt over the counter and demanded money.

Jones and security expert Bill Stanton spoke about it on The Early Show Monday with co-anchor Harry Smith.

Jones said she remembered thinking, "He's not gettin' nothing" as she struggled valiantly.

Jones suffered a wound to her back and two to her legs.
