Police in Wheat Ridge, Colo., have released shocking video of a botched cellphone store robbery in which two female employees fought off a would-be thief who was armed with an assault rifle.

The perp entered the Advantage Wireless store on June 16 and forced the two workers behind the counter, The Denver Channel reports.

But the women managed to overpower the robber.

The gunman then used his weapon -- identified by investigators as a Kel-Tec Sub 9, Sub 2000 or another folding carbine -- and shot out the glass door, which the women had been attempting to hold shut.
