The clip starts with a robber entering the store while the woman was cleaning it with a cloth in her hand. He was wearing a black hoodie and armed with a knife. The woman is seen attacking the thief with just a cleaning cloth and cleaning spray as the robber attempts to attack the cash counter upon entering the store.
The robber tries to hide his face as the woman strikes him on the head. Another man rushes to apprehend the thief as soon as he spots the theft in progress. The black hoodie man manages to escape his grasp, though, and manages to escape.
The footage has received over 1.3 lakh views and more than 3,000 likes since being shared on Twitter on Friday.
Users can be seen appreciating the woman’s bravery in the comment section of the post.
One user asked and wrote, “Is that a spatula in his hand?” while another said, “Long live Turkish bakery.”
A third user simply said, “Brave lady.”
