Gurchran Singh and his wife Parvinder Chahal simply weren't in the mood, however.

“They jumped in and said give me the money!" Singh told WRBG. "My wife said, 'Take it, take the money!'"

But instead off fleeing in fear, the husband and wife teamed up to beat back the onslaught.

In the video, Singh is seen grabbing a metal baseball bat from behind the counter. Chahal then follows him, picking up a stick to defend the store.

Thanks to the couple's bravery, the encounter lasted only a few seconds and the suspect made off only with a pack of cigarettes, cops say.

Even when the robbery attempt ended, Singh's pursuit continued. He and a friend chased down the suspects and followed behind their vehicle until cops arrived.
