Watch: Cashier Totally Turns the Tables Against Armed Robber

A security camera captured a woman cashier fending off an armed robber in Georgia.

The woman grabbed the robber’s gun before he fled, according to WFXG.

He say I shoot you! I say go ahead. If you want to shoot me, shoot me!
— Bhumika Patel, cashier

Burke County officers said 17-year-old Christian Dakota Thornton was charged with criminal attempt armed robbery, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during a crime, WRDW reported.

Deputies responded to the Keysville Convenience Store Tuesday morning at around 11 a.m. In the footage, the suspect appears to be buying a soda before he pulls out a gun.

The cashier was identified as Bhumika Patel.

“My register opened and he said ‘No, no, no, no. I don’t need change. Give me whole money,'” Patel told WRDW. She then went on the offensive.

“I say no I can’t. He say I shoot you! I say go ahead. If you want to shoot me, shoot me!” Patel said.

“He just try to face off like this gun, and I just slap it like that,” Patel added.

Patel then grabbed a hammer and ran after him. “After I pick my hammer and try to reach out, he just fall down and run out,” she said.
