Worst robbery attempt ever

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Jul 4, 2014

Two young men recently tried to rob a jewelry store in South Fresno, California.

However, it didn't quite go as planned and the whole thing was caught on camera, according to KFSN-TV Channel 30.

The aspiring criminals entered the store, pretending to be customers. But then, one of them pulled a gun.

Next, the other man attempted to jump over the counter, except he didn't quite make it. Of course, it might have helped if he wasn't busy talking on his phone at the time. So, he had to run around instead.

The owner, who was in the back of the store at the time, heard the commotion.

You can't see it on the video, but the owner also has a gun.

The fella who had attempted to jump the counter immediately dropped to the floor and headed for the door.

The one with the gun flinched and then decided to also make a run for it.

The attempted robbery happened June 27. The young men have not been caught yet. Local police say they are following several leads.
