A bungling robber was left speechless after a female shopkeeper snatched his gun - after realising it was FAKE.
The thug was arrested just ten minutes after the failed robbery when he returned to the corner shop to ask for his gun back .
CCTV footage shows the hilarious mishap at a corner shop in North Taiwan's Keelung City.
The unnamed woman was working behind the till when the thug, only named as Hsieh, walked in and asked for a packet of cigarettes.
The 21-year-old then pulled out the black imitation pistol from his bag as soon as the shopkeeper turned her back.
