Two armed robbers were forced to run for their lives after a Sikh shopkeeper and his son fought back and bashed them up in Napier, a New Zealand city with a seaport.

The shopkeeper, identified only as M Singh, and his son were in their family-run store when two masked robbers armed with a crowbar and a hammer stormed their business at 5:40 Friday morning (26 Aug 2016).

One of the offenders attacked the father-son duo with a crowbar, while the other climbed on to the cash counter before landing in the middle of the father and the son, reports SBS, the Australian radio station. See here for report and video.

The Mr. Singh and his son were equally quick in fighting back the uninvited guests using hockey sticks, forcing them to run for their lives, it added.

It was the first such incident during the last ten years since the Singhs have owned this business.

“Police had told us a few days ago that a gang could target our business, so we were prepared,” a family member told SBS Punjabi who identified herself as Mrs. Kaur.
