A would-be robber will likely never return to a Laundromat after he was met by the 90-year-old owner determined to fight back.

Surveillance video shows a man walking into George Hicks' office in Dayton, Ohio. He demanded money from the register, but the 90-year-old refused.

Hicks says he reached for his pocket and told the suspect he wasn't getting anything. That quickly scared the man away.

"I got up and had my gun in my hand," Hicks laughed. "He ran out the door and, phew! He flew."

The suspect took off without taking any money.
