A California jewelry-store owner’s nephew pulled a gun on the suspects as the two men allegedly tried to rob his uncle’s store, according to reports.

The suspects, caught on video, allegedly tried to stab the owner Jean Boujekian during the attempted robbery at Vana Watch and Jewelry in South Pasadena on Friday, The Orange County Register reported.

“I didn’t feel comfortable, so I came out of the back on the floor and my cousin was in the background and one of them pulled out a knife,” Boujekian told KABC.

“Probably the scariest thing — everything slowed done and your adrenaline pumping. Everything slowed down. It felt like an eternity, but if you look at the video you can see it happened very fast,” Boujekian added.

The police said that the suspects escaped in a four-door, green Chevy Malibu with black rims and damage to the right rear, California license plate 5YAC399.

“Don’t come to South Pasadena. It is not a good place, especially right in front of the police station. The police were here within 30 seconds. It is not a good idea,” Boujekian told KABC.
