WATCH: Pensioner Punches Mugger In The Face During Attempted Robbery

A quick-thinking pensioner has fought back against his mugger, punching him in the face when he threatened to take his cash and bank card.

CCTV posted to the South Wales Police Cardiff Facebook page shows the 77-year-old man withdrawing cash from an ATM outside a deserted supermarket, early in the morning on February 5.

The man was then approached by a stranger wearing high-vis, who demanded he hand over his bank card and his cash.

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.

Instead of giving the mugger what he wanted, the pensioner punched his attacker in the face as a biff broke out between them.

Police said the man bravely fought off the suspect, who ended up scurrying off empty-handed.

"The victim, in this case, showed great bravery, however he has been left shaken," Stephen Mayne from South Wales Police said.

The suspect is still at large.
