A store clerk in Augusta, Georgia, decided she was not going to be a victim when an armed robber demanded money from her.
In a surveillance video attained by WLS-TV on Tuesday, the robber approached the cash register with a can of soda. He handed the clerk money to pay for the soda and after she opened the cash register drawer, he rather clumsily pulled a gun out from under his hoodie and stuck it in her face.
Startled at first, but obviously not shaken, the clerk slapped the gun away from the robber twice as he attempted to reach across the counter and grab the drawer.
His plan didn’t work so well. As the thief tried to get a grip on the drawer, the money in it went everywhere. Then the clerk managed to take the drawer from him and began to hit him on the head with it.
The clerk wasn’t finished with him, however, and grabbed a nearby hammer and proceeded to chase after him. I, for one, would’ve enjoyed seeing the guy running from this girl and her hammer. Not a good day for this would-be thief.
Police are still looking for the suspect.
Watch this feisty clerk fight back in the video below:
We’ve seen people fight back like this before and it’s always awesome to see punks like this get what they deserve. This guy probably thought a female clerk would be an easy target, but she made him think again.
We wouldn’t recommend trying to slap a gun out of the hand of someone attempting to rob you, but apparently something about this situation told the clerk this guy wasn’t going to shoot her.
