In a video that’s being shared widely, three employees of a jewellery store in Canada are seen fighting off robbers with swords. When four men attempted to break into the Ashok Jewellers’ store in Mississauga, by breaking the glass panels of the outlet, the store’s staff charged at them with swords and prevented them from entering the shop.
“When we saw them coming in, that’s when we really took action and we rushed them,” Arjun Kumar, the son of the store’s owner, told CBC News.
Kumar said one of the men had a handgun and tried to fire, but the weapon jammed. “They had a gun but my main concern was, I wanted them to not get into my store,” he added.
The footage shows the masked robbers making repeated attempts to come in and scare the employees with a hammer but they flee after seeing the store’s employees threatening them with swords.
