"A knife-wielding robber's attempt to rob an off-license shop in Devon is thwarted by the owner's dog. Eve Watson, 55, and her six-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Cane, took on the intruder after he jumped over the counter with a Stanley knife demanding money from the till. The shop owner fought back by grabbing a nearby craft knife, telling the robber, 'so you like to play with knives, do you'. Mrs Watson then grappled with the robber and managed to pull down his hood, exposing his face to the CCTV cameras in the shop." The story ends with the dog biting the robber in the crotch, and the robber fleeing. There is video, if you are so inclined.
