A female shop employee used a mop to fend off an armed robber in Mineralnye Vody, Russia.
Surveillance video from the store shows the robber demanding money, but then backing up when the woman comes after him with a mop, notes RT.com.
The robber retreated and fled the shop. He and his accomplice were caught a few hours later by the police.
Two balaclavas and a BB gun were discovered on the suspects during a search; the suspects turned out to be former convicts.
