Sex shop workers chase off armed robber with toys

Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

When an armed robber decided to rob the Lotions and Lace store in San Bernardino, California, he didn’t realize he was up for a fight.

The man is seen on surveillance video entering the store at about 9:45 p.m. with his face covered and a gun in his hand.

An employee that wanted to only go by Amy said she thought the gun was a fake.

“With the gun, he walked in. I just thought he was trying to be funny, to scare us,” she stated. “But then I saw the gun and it was like, really? I don’t have time for this.”

She yelled at the man, and he tried to grab her. It was then that another employee began throwing sex toys at the attacker until he ran off.

“I think he was a coward,” the other employee stated. “Coming in and trying to get over on two females and not realizing [they] were pretty feisty.”

Police are on the hunt for the man and are asking the public for any assistance.
