Friday evening, a little before 10 p.m., two workers at Lotions and Lace, an adult toy shop in San Bernadino, California fought off an armed robber with – that’s right, you guessed it – sex toys. The assailant entered the store with a handgun intent on robbing the place. Instead, he found himself yelled at and ducking from sex toys the clerks threw at him.

According to ABC13, the man walked into the store with his face covered, holding what looked like a gun. One of the clerks, “Amy” said she wasn’t scared because she didn’t believe it was a real gun. “With the gun, he walked in. I just thought he was trying to be funny, to scare us,” she said. “But then I saw the gun and it was like, really? I don’t have time for this.”

The robber grabbed one of the clerks. The other clerk began throwing sex toys at him. The assailant fled the store without any money. “I think he was a coward,” said the store’s other employee according to ABC13. “Coming in and trying to get over on two females and not realizing that were pretty feisty.”

Police released surveillance video of the robbery, including images of the suspect outside the store with his face uncovered.

While these ladies were lucky and their strategy worked well for them, it most cases the police would prefer you call 9-1-1. It can be dangerous to take on an armed robber by yourself.
