Five armed men who attempted to rob a jewellery store were left scrambling for the door when a 65-year-old woman opened fire on them. The handgun-wielding thieves, clad in hoodies, were forced to flee Continental Jewelry in Garden Grove, California, after the woman chased after them last week.

The men pulled up to the store in a white Ford SUV and entered one by one, pointing their guns at the clerks and one customer.

They ordered everybody to drop to the ground, while opening up pillowcases and demanding cash in what was likely to be a violent smash-and-grab heist.

But the robbers were thwarted in their tracks when the 65-year-old store owner heard the commotion from the back of the store. She ran into the main room while firing two rounds, causing the men to panic and attempt to flee the store.

The one-minute incident, which was captured on surveillance camera, shows the men falling over and stumbling into each other as they try to open the door.

The elderly woman chases after them wielding her handgun as they attempt to leave in their getaway car.

But their vehicle left so quickly that three robbers were left behind and were picked up a block-and-a-half later.

‘She felt that these suspects where possibly going to injury the employees or the customer, so she fired two rounds from her handgun towards the suspects, which caused them to flee the store,’ Garden Grove Police Lt. Jeff Nightengale told ABC 7.

‘Obviously, we are leery of recommending that storeowners take immediate action. It’s all going to have to be based on the circumstances at hand.’

Nobody was injured during the robbery. Police are still searching for the suspects.
