23 November 2018 - 10:52

Employees at a jewellery store in Canada used swords to thwart an attempted robbery.

CBC reported that after intruders broke a window, one man attempted to climb into the store through the broken glass - until three people inside the store charged him wielding sabre-style swords.

"When we saw them coming in, that's when we really took action and we rushed them,"  Arjun Kumar, the son of the store's owner, told CBC.

Kumar said the swords were gifts from a friend of the family.

Police are searching for the four suspects.
