image for Robber Foiled In Leeds

Two female employees of a bookmaking shop in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, took on a robber who barged into their office. Nickola Kirk, 37, and Francisca Hamilton, 39, fought with the man, who decided he was outmatched and tried to run -- but found the front door was locked.

Next he tried to smash through with a stool, Nickola grabbed him and started bashing his head against the door.

The robber next attempted to dash through another door, but it was a storeroom; Francisca locked the door behind him and called police.

But before officers arrived, the women realized the robber was kicking through the ceiling to escape to the roof.

Nickola grabbed a baseball bat, went up to the roof, and waited for him to emerge through the hole.

When he did she cracked him on the head, and police arrived to arrest the unnamed 28-year-old man.

The Yorkshire Evening Post reported that the man does not seem to know who he is or where he is...just keeps mumbling something about "Home Alone".
