Sundeep Kaur,24, was working at her father’s shop alone in Coulby Newham, North Yorkshire when she was confronted by three knife-wielding attackers. In her own words Sundeep Kaur said as soon as she saw them walk in she knew it was ‘fight or flight’ time.
The three knife-wielding thugs soon found out they had picked the wrong shop! Sundeep Kaur without hesitation kicked into action reports the Daily Mail.
As one of the masked trio pointed a knife at her, brave Ms Kaur stepped towards them, whipped out a can of criminal identifier spray and aimed it at their faces. One of the knife-wielding raiders appears to threaten Ms Kaur, urging her to hand over some cash. The spray is a red gel which stays on the skin for around seven days.
‘It’s hard to really have time to think, the first thing to do was to defend myself,’ she said.
‘I kind of just saw the knife and I thought “I don’t want to get hit by this.” I pushed back and moved forward to them.
‘I tried to aim in the face and get the ones trying to get away. They did run pretty quick,’ she added.
‘I don’t really think it’s a hero move. You can either fight or flight really.’
Incredibly, Ms Kaur took a moment to compose herself, rang the police, before continuing on with her shift as normal.
She said: ‘I kind of just had a breather, police came and I started calming down.
‘I just opened up again back to normal.
‘I was just kind of glad they ran off.
‘I felt a bit of an idiot in case I did get hurt, I was in two minds afterwards.’
Ms Kaur, from Stockton, said the shop is run by her father, Gurcharan Singh, who’s had it for around 10 years. She says she’s previously trained in Gatka, a Sikh martial art, something which gave her the confidence to stand up and be counted.
Police are now hunting the suspects.
