A jewelry store owner in the Dutch city of Borne
A jewelry store owner in the Dutch city of Borne has fought off three would-be burglars by throwing his precious wares at them, the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reported on Wednesday.

According to jeweler Ted Koning, 49, he was standing behind the counter of his store on Tuesday evening when three men entered and pointed a gun at him, demanding money and jewelry.

"My actions were completely reflexive," Koning was quoted as saying by De Telegraaf. "I started throwing boxes of jewelry, necklaces and other trinkets at the men's heads. They were obviously so confused by this that they ran out of the store empty-handed."

The store's surveillance camera showed the three men in masks entering the store and the attempted heist that followed - which lasted all of 12 seconds.

Passers-by saw the men flee in a Ford Escort, which the paper said was reported stolen. Since the men were in masks, none of the witnesses were able to give a physical description of the baffled burglars.
