Store owner takes action against armed robbers.


I have no idea where this happened, but it’s a fun surveillance video.
Here’s part of the attached story:

Shop owner Gurmukh Singh, 26, decided to take matters into his own hands when two armed robbers entered his Gagi’s Market, at 401 S. Warman Ave. on the Westside, shop this week.

Swinging a baseball bat, Singh, chased two armed robbers…


from his store.
He then followed them into the parking lot and swung his bat against a Ford pickup truck the robbers were using so they could not escape.

“I’m not letting you go,” Singh yelled. “Go ahead and shoot me.”
The incident began about 9:50 a.m. Wednesday when two men entered Gagi’s Market, 401 S. Warman Ave.

…Singh, who hails from India and has been in Indianapolis for the past 17 months, noticed them acting strangely and became leery.
One man wore a hooded sweatshirt, which was not appropriate for the hot summer weather, Singh’s wife said Thursday.

Singh put his hand on the bat he keeps under the counter and told his wife, Niki Phagura, 23, to take their 2-year-old daughter, Gagi, into a back room until the men left.

“They kept asking for stuff, and he kept putting it on the counter,” Phagura said. “When he told them how much it was, one guy went into his pockets and said, ‘I don’t have any money; why don’t you give me yours.’ ”
Singh brought his bat down hard on top of the man’s gun-wielding hand, according to police reports and witness accounts.
The robbers fled; Singh chased them behind his store and watched them climb into a 1999 Ford Ranger pickup.
