Robberies Foiled With Beer, Golf Clubs & A Toy Gun
Kelvedon Hatch, England – A convenience store manager foiled an attempted robbery by throwing cans of beer at the attempted robber.
Aman Singh-Mann, 29, manager of the Nisa store in Kelvedon Hatch, England, said a knife-wielding masked man entered the store around 5:15 p.m. in the afternoon and demanded an employee open the cash register.
“It was a man shouting ‘open the till’. Straight away I knew I had to do something and I just acted on instinct. I went out and saw the man and he was waving the knife around. I grabbed the first thing I could and threw it at him.”
Singh-Mann said he continued to threw beer cans at the robber until he fled. Police are still trying to find the suspect. It’s a damn good thing Mr. Singh-Mann didn’t use pepper spray or a stun gun to fight off the robber or the bobbies would have arrested him for using a deadly weapon!

Well, you gotta give him credit for thinking on his feet, after all a Beer bottle makes a great self defense weapon in a pinch. You know what makes a better one? A .500 Smith & Wesson!!!
Garden Grove, Ca – A jewelry store owner stopped an attempted robbery Wednesday by using an unlikely weapon…a nine iron!
Two Asian men entered Masterpiece Jewelry and indicated they had a question about repairing a piece of jewelry.
After the store owner buzzed them in, one of the suspects held a stun gun to the owner’s neck and demanded jewelry.
The owner broke free, ran to the back of the store and activated a silent alarm.
The attackers then shocked him repeatedly with the stun gun in an attempt to take him down. However, he was able to grab his golf club and tee-off on them so hard, they ran away, without any merchandise.
“We gotta be more careful,” said the owner, who was too afraid to reveal his name. “It’s the first time for me. What a shock.”
Officials plan to review security tapes hoping it will lead to the suspects.
