A claw hammer and crowbar are no match for a hockey stick and table leg, when wielded by father and son duo Manmohan and Sukhjinder Pal Singh.
Security video of the failed attempt to rob the Te Awa Dairy on Friday shows the two would-be masked robbers stride into the Napier dairy at 5.41am. They sprint out 15 seconds later.
Father Manmohan, a 61-year-old farmer, reached for the table leg under the shop counter and struck the first blow as the first offender arrived at the counter.
The table leg narrowly missed and the robber responded with his hammer, jumping over the counter and returning blows.
The two men grappled behind the counter as his son kept the second assailant at bay with a hockey stick, occasionally landing a blow on his father’s assailant.
The grappling pair knocked over the shop counter, blocking the exit of the second offender who retreated to the back of the shop to make his exit.
The first offender also exits, tumbling head first over the fallen counter but finds himself struck with his own crowbar, taken from him by the father.
He picks up a newspaper display stand and throws it at the pair and and the two make their escape.
Sukhjinder Pal told Hawke’s Bay Today he was at the counter trying to fix a glitch with the till’s computer when the masked pair entered. via m.nzherald.co.nz
