WATCH: Petrol Station Employee Fights Off Robber With Mop
A security camera installed in a gas station in Russia's Siberian Novosibirsk region captured the moment a masked robber used pepper spray to get to the cash register during the early hours of Saturday.
The CCTV footage showed the robber using the pepper spray against a female employee, who rushed into the store to stop the theft.
After spraying in the wrong direction, the robber tried again.
The woman disappears from view and comes back wielding a mop which she then used to fight off the robber, who ran away with AU$160.00.
Novosibirsk regional police released the CCTV images and gave a detailed description of the suspect, asking for information about the robber, who has now been put on a wanted list.
