SAN BERNARDINO, CA (WCMH) — A man got more than he bargained for when he attempted to rob an adult store in San Bernardino.
Surveillance cameras were rolling when the suspect walked into Lotions and Lace Wednesday night.
The employees weren’t having it.
When the suspect grabbed one of the two women working, they fought back, throwing adult toys at the armed man until he ran away empty-handed.
One of the women, who identified herself as Amy to ABC7, said she thought the man was just trying to be funny at first.
“But then I saw the gun and it was like, ‘Really? I don’t have time for this,’” she told the station.
“You’re not going to come into the store that I’m in charge of and take anything from here.”
She said she wasn’t scared–just irritated at the man’s gall.
“They come in handy, I’m telling you,” Amy said of the sex toys they threw.
The other employee said she thinks the man is a coward.
Police are on the lookout for the would-be robber. But so far, no arrests have been made.
