Sometimes, the only thing that stops a bad woman with a gun is a good woman with an 8-pack of beer.

That's the unorthodox crime-fighting technique employed by Lein Nguyen, a 70-year-old convenience store employee clerk in Oklahoma City.

Nguyen was working at the Best Stop Food Mart Sunday when a woman disguising herself with a black ball cap came into the store demanding cash.

"'Give me money. Give me all your money. If not, I shoot you. I kill you,' and she keep saying that," Nguyen told News9.com.

Nguyen said the woman started beating her with a gun, but Nguyen fought back with the only weapons at her disposal: Cases of beer.

“I throw at her and I think that’s why she run…I think I get lucky,” Nguyen told KOCO TV.

The alleged robber fled the scene without any money or beer.

Although Nguyen suffered some bruises from being hit with the gun, she was not seriously injured, NewsOK.com reports.

Oklahoma City police are now looking for a black female, about 30 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 110 pounds. Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call (405) 235-7300.
