Armed robbery victims fight back with clothes iron

When is a gun no match for a clothes iron?

A masked man attempted to rob a pair of victims at gunpoint in a parking lot in Macon, Georgia, late Monday night. One of the individuals claimed the pair had no money, but that there might be some cash at a nearby apartment.

The man escorted the individuals to the apartment where he ordered them—along with another woman already inside the dwelling—to lie down on the floor. At this point, one of the women threw a clothes iron at the man, striking him in the face and causing him to drop his handgun. According to the police report, the trio then beat the man with an assortment of objects until he fled the apartment.
