Video has captured the dramatic moment two would-be thieves were thwarted by a strong fisted store employee in Colombia.
CCTV cameras show the masked men storming the shop in Bogota brandishing a home made firearm.
The pair approach the counter and start threatening the attendant, reaching behind the bench to try and open the till.
But the employee quickly shows them who's boss.
He rushes around the counter and starts beating one of the men with his bare hands, before wrestling the weapon off the other.
His actions send the thieves running out of the shop with their tails between their legs.
This is not the first time bold and brazen thieves have received some rough justice.
