Sometimes All You Need Is A Water Bucket To Stop A Robbery

I once worked retail for three years and thankfully never had to deal with an armed robbery. But even if I was ever confronted with some guy with a gun, the last thing on my mind would be too fight him off with a bucket filled with water. Well, that’s exactly what one lady in Brazil did.

The incident, caught on security cameras, shows two women cleaning up a shop when all of a sudden a man with a gun enters the shop. Now not a lot of known of this incident. All we know is that it takes place in Assis Chateaubriand, Parana, Brazil, features a brave woman and a not so brave armed robber whose weakness is apparently water.

Here’s how the incident is described on YouTube:

“I was cleaning the shop on Saturday when the thief appeared and pointed a gun at me The only reaction I had was shown on the security cameras.”

Now take a look at the video:

Perhaps that dude thought that bucket was filled with boiling hot water. Or perhaps he saw The Wizard of Oz as a kid and was traumatized by what happened to the Wicked Witch of the West. Either way, he’s going to have to answer to all his buddies when they see this video of him running away.
