Instead of just allowing the robber to do his own thing, the woman decided to step in and fight the robber.

The woman also tried to pull back the robber before she told him to leave and even grabbed the weapon from the thug before getting pushed on the floor. 

This made the robber to think about what he was doing and made him flee the scene without robbing the store, which is located in Newham, East London. 

Jaymin Rana, who owns the shop, said that his mother was working behind the counter at around 2pm when a man came in and started to threaten her.

The owner of the shop said that his mother did not think anything of the masked man initially because of the ongoing pandemic.
