Bhumika Patel didn’t mess around.
Bhumika Patel gave much more than she got when an armed robber tried to hold up the Keysville Convenience Store in Keysville, Georgia, on Tuesday. Surveillance footage shows the hooded suspect pulling a gun as he goes to the counter with a can of Mountain Dew.
Patel twice slaps the firearm away, before grappling with the robber and hitting him over the head with the cash drawer.
She then grabs a hammer and chases him out of the store Incredibly, she wasn’t injured in the incident. “Just a little bit of a scratch here. Three nails lose. That’s it,” she told WRDW. Patel said her Hindu faith meant she wasn’t nervous during the terrifying encounter.
“I just believe strongly in my religion and my God, if he wants to save me, nobody can touch me,” she told WFXG.
Burke County Sheriff’s Office later arrested 17-year-old Christian Dakota Thornton at his home in Richmond County. He was charged with criminal attempt armed robbery, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during a crime.
