A Denny's restaurant in Houston, Texas was recently struck by robbers who got a rude surprise from a female customer.
A man, who refused to be identified, told Click 2 Houston that the robbers entered the restaurant at about 4 a.m. on Thursday and tried to rob his brother and other patrons (video below).
However, when his brother's wife came out of the restaurant bathroom and witnessed the robbery, she pulled a handgun out of her purse and started shooting at the robbers, who fled the scene.
"She said she came out of the restroom and saw my brother on the floor. That's when she started doing what she gotta do. She got a license and she'll do anything to protect her kids and my brother," said the victim's brother.
Police do not how many shots were fired, but say bullets did hit cars in the parking lot. No customers were injured.
The robbers did steal some jewelry, say police.
