    Employees at a California sex shop used adult toys to fight off an armed robber, and the entire ordeal was captured on store surveillance footage.

    On Wednesday evening, just before Lotions & Lace in San Bernardino was about to close, a man in a hoodie walked in with his face covered, holding what appeared to be a gun.

    "With the gun, he walked in. I just thought he was trying to be funny, to scare us," a brave store clerk, identified only as Amy, seen in the video with long blonde hair, told ABC 7. "But then I saw the gun and it was like, really? I don't have time for this."

    In the shocking footage, Amy is behind the counter and shouting at the intruder. Eventually, the man tried to grab her, and that is when a coworker began throwing sex toys at him.


    Eventually, the attempted robber fled the store empty-handed.

    "I think he was a coward," the store's other employee, who was flinging the dildos, told ABC 7. "Coming in and trying to get over on two females and not realizing that we're pretty feisty."

    The San Bernardino Police released the footage, as well as a blurry image of the man’s face from an outside camera, in hopes that the public will help to identify him.

    So far, the suspect has not been apprehended.
