A Thief With a Hammer Gets Pepper Sprayed, and Attacked with a Chair

It’s not clear where this happened.  A store security cam shot video of a thief with a hammer getting pepper sprayed by a store employee.  They go at it a couple of times before the employee backs away and locks himself inside the cooler. The pepper spray did the trick though, because the thief is stumbling around and disoriented.  And that’s when a different guy in the store picks up a chair and starts HITTING him with it.
