The brother-sister duo and another store employee managed to stop the thieves by punching and kicking the suspects to deter the attack. It happened this weekend at the Bella Terra mall in Huntington Beach.

Dallas confirmed that if a similar incident happens again, it will do whatever it takes to thwart the robbers.

“I’d rather get my snot kicked out doing at least my best than sitting in the back and cowering if people come in,” Dallas said. “But we’re definitely taking this as a little wake-up call, we’re just going to beef up our security and everything in the store.”

“But we really hope the police can be funded more so they can stop this kind of thing from happening and that the criminals are actually prosecuted, so they don’t feel so brazen doing it in broad daylight.” , she continued.
