CCTV,Nov 14/08:Windsor,Ontario:A Windsor man learned that lesson the hard way when he burst into an Albert Road convenience store, wildly swinging an aluminum Easton bat and demanding cash and cigarettes.
Salim Baho, the store's owner for 13 years, was unruffled when a masked man smashed the bat into a box of beef jerky, his cash register and his lottery machine, shattering glass and causing an estimated $3,000 in damage.
Baho calmly picked up a metal folding chair from behind the counter and fended off the enraged robber like a professional lion tamer.
"A baseball bat, to me, is a toothpick. They're not going to scare me with that," said Baho, 37, a father of three who emigrated from Iraq to Canada in 1993.
"They could come at me with a helicopter and I wouldn't give up. As long as I'm working here to feed my kids, I'll never give up."
