    Two robbers entered a frites shop in the Walloon city of Ath around 21:45 on Sunday night, according to the public prosecutor’s office of Tournai in the Hainaut province.

    The robbers threatened the woman behind the counter with a hammer and demanded the contents of the cash register, but she called for help.

    The woman’s mother, who owns the frites shop, came in and threw the cash register drawer at the robbers. Then, she took some glowing hot frying oil and threw it at them as well, after which they ran away and fled on their scooter.
