On Wednesday night, two women were accosted by a man carrying a fake gun into their San Bernardino shop, Lotions & Lace. When he tried to grab one of them, they fought back with every dildo in arm’s reach.

ABC 7 reports that a store clerk identified only as “Amy” was skeptical of her would-be robber from the moment he approached her. She says, “I just thought he was trying to be funny, to scare us. But then I saw the gun and it was like, really? I don’t have time for this.”

Amy insists that she never thought the gun was real despite the robber’s real intentions of ripping off her cash register. In the footage below, she describes her mental process as she yells at the unidentified man trying to take her hard earned money. After the suspect lays hands on her, Amy’s co-worker starts throwing sex toys at his head, a truly inspiring defense:

The thief scampered off, his fake gun proving no match for a fake penis. Police are, of course, warning the public that hitting an attacker with a silicone wang is unwise, and discourage people from fighting armed robbers. Amy’s co-worker told ABC 7, “I think he was a coward. Coming in and trying to get over on two females and not realizing that were pretty feisty.”

Of the use of sex toys as their weapon of choice, Amy said, “They come in handy.”
