When would-be robber Paul Grimshaw posed as a delivery man to get into the home of a gold dealer, he didn't bank on the man's fierce fiancée coming to the rescue.
Grimshaw used a stun gun to attack Nigel Blackburn in his home in Leicestershire - but CCTV footage shows how he was soon running scared as Mr Blackburn's fiancée and her friend both grabbed knives and chased him out.
Watch the CCTV below:
Grimshaw (31), of Victory Boulevard, Lytham, St Anne’s, was jailed for eight years at Leicester Crown Court for aggravated burglary and possessing a stun-gun with intent to commit robbery.
