A WOMAN cashier in a Spanish supermarket has bravely fought off a thief who attempted to rob the store after he pointed a gun in her face.
The man, who appeared to be looking for money to pay for some goods, whipped out a pistol.
But the cashier, who, far from being scared, stood up to him and the alleged robber fled empty-handed whenever he noticed the presence of other people at the door.
The shocking incident in Almonte (Huelva) was captured on CCTV and clearly shows the man pointing a gun – later found to be a plastic imitation – at her.
Local Police in the town arrested a man the following day after he was recognised by a bus driver, although a second person confessed to the crime, so the original person was released.
