Two female sex shop workers in the US scared off an armed robber by throwing adult toys at him.
Video shows the would-be robber entering the Lotions & Lace shop in San Bernardino, California on Wednesday just as the store was about to close, ABC news reports.
The man has his face covered and appears to point a gun at one of the sales assistants behind the counter.
The employee, who identified herself as ‘Amy’, told ABC News she was more angry than scared.
“With the gun, he walked in. I just thought he was trying to be funny, to scare us,” she said. “But then I saw the gun and it was like, really? I don’t have time for this.”
When the man tried to grab Amy, another employee stepped in, and started throwing sex toys at the man.
Eventually, the man left empty-handed.
“I think he was a coward,” said the store’s other employee. “Coming in and trying to get over on two females and not realizing that we’re pretty feisty.”
Police are still trying to track down the man and have released CCTV images of him in the car park of the store without his mask on.
