(Scroll down for video) An armed robber fled in panic after being chased by an elderly female bakery worker, according to video uploaded to the Internet.

The incident that was caught on surveillance video showed the worker at the French bakery in Paris, facing off with the armed robber, who tried to rob the business, pointing a gun at her face.

She lost her temper and attacked him with a broom.

The woman works at Le Petit Duc, in the city of Saint-Maur-des-Fosses. Initially, the thief chased the store manager to the back of the store and then tried to smash open the cash register.

The woman, who did not want to see the thief stealing the cash, began to attack him with the broom and chased him out the store.

The thief grabbed her broom and ran out from the store in apparent panic.

Police have launched an investigation, but so far, no arrests have been made.
