Last Wednesday night, a group stormed the Douglass Road convenience store. The woman behind the counter looked up to the barrel of a pistol in her face, as one of the suspects demanded money.
"During that time that they came, there was no one here. And, that's why they had the opportunity to come in," said cashier, Sophea Heng.
Behind the counter, Sophea Heng's mother, who was counting cash, actually grabs at the gun.
Sophea, comes running with a broom, but one of the robbers grabs her instead.
"I don't know. I guess that just didn't go through my mind yet. I just saw them, and I just tried to get to my mom as fast as I could," said Heng.
Sophea says she heard a loud noise and came running, never thinking of the risk she was taking.
"We work hard, and they come and act like it's theirs and just come. And, the fact that they hit my mom, yeah, that makes me mad," said Hen
