Incredible moment brave female Post Office cashier fights back against armed robber

A KNIFE-WIELDING robber chose the wrong place to target as a plucky Post Office worker chased him away.

The man – wearing a hoody and a “red devil” mask – was caught on CCTV footage entering a Post Office in Cardiff, UK on Tuesday morning (October 25).

All seems well until he pulled out a large kitchen knife and started threatening the female cashier behind the till.

But instead of handing the fiend a fistful of cash the woman produced a bat from under the counter.

Not intimidated by the knife, she then lashed out at the thief from behind the till pushing him back.

Despite dangerously jabbing the knife towards the woman she heroically made her way around the till to chase the thug off.

Postmaster Shady Taha, 33, said she missed the whole ordeal: “It was just normal day like usual. I was in the back doing some paperwork. All of a sudden I could hear a scream or a shout.

“I didn’t really think much of it first of all because normally we do have customers who scream or shout at their partner outside or kids.

“I stood by the counter to have a better look at the front and I saw a guy standing there. He seemed casual so didn’t think much of it.
However the coward scarpered before she could reach him.

“I heard my colleague shouting my name, so I thought there is something wrong. I looked at the camera and I saw her with a bat trying to get at the guy and the guy had a knife with him.

“By the time I had run around to go and help he was already trying to run out of the shop and she also was coming round the counter to chase him out of the shop. She was the hero of the day.”

Police said the man fled the Post Office and they are now appealing for witnesses.
