In Santa Monica, two criminals wielding hammers rushed into a jewelry store. One of them smashed a display case with a sledgehammer, but the owner of the store bravely fought back against them using only his bare hands. Incredibly, the two would-be thieves ran off and the store owner was only left with minor injuries.
