CAUGHT ON VIDEO: Store Owner Fends Off Robber with Bananas in Mississauga
On Saturday, Feb. 2, an attempted robbery was thwarted when a convenience store owner successfully fended off a suspect with a banana.
That’s right, a banana.
Shortly after 9:00 p.m., Peel police announced that an attempted robbery occurred at A&J Convenience, which is located in the Hurontario and John Street area.
According to police, the male suspect fled the scene after Seungae Kim and another worker defended themselves by striking the suspect with a banana.

No injuries were reported and no arrests have been made at this time.
But while the store employees were able to fend off the would-be attacker, police advise against taking action against anyone attempting to rob an establishment.
“We never encourage business owners to resist any type of violence such as this,” says Peel police Const. Akhil Mooken. “Always comply with them and contact us. We don’t want anyone to get injured in instances such this.”
The investigation is ongoing.
