When three women sauntered into the PCI Pharmacy in DeKalb County, Georgia, one afternoon last month, they weren’t after a new batch of Tums.
Instead, after chatting with the manager for a spell, police said the women pulled a gun on him and then maced him in the face, WAGA-TV reported.
Surveillance video showed the manager’s reaction: He sure didn’t put up his hands or try to run away.
No, this gutsy guy actually went for the gun one of the women pulled on him. A very brief tug of war ensued before the manager finally yanked the gun from the woman’s hand.
And wouldn’t you know that the whole crew at that point decided to take their business elsewhere?
They ran from the pharmacy and then departed the scene in what police said was a silver or gray older model sedan with damage to the front right fender, WAGA reported.
Investigators pulled a serial number off the handgun used in the attempted robbery, the station noted.
The manager was treated at the scene for the mace and wasn’t seriously injured, WAGA said.
Police told the station that the April 24 incident marked the second time in five months that the pharmacy had been robbed.
