An armed robber's gun was chopped from his hand by a cook with a cleaver after the perp made the mistake of picking on the Crazy Wings restaurant in Norfolk, Virginia.

Jabrie Brown, 19, allegedly demanded money from cashier Kequi Wang and a customer "and while he was putting the customer's money in his pocket, the cashier tried to wrestle the gun from him," The Virginian-Pilot reported.

Wang was fighting for the gun as her husband Lin came from the kitchen wielding a cleaver and chopping deep gashes into Brown, CNN reported.

Wang pulled the gun from Brown's hand and he fled from the restaurant bleeding.

Brown was later taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital after police received a call about a stabbing victim, The Virginian-Pilot reported. He was then jailed on charges of robbery and use of a firearm in a felony.

Wang told CNN she thought the gun was fake and was surprised when she pointed it at the floor, pulled the trigger and the gun went off.

The incident was caught on the store's surveillance video and posted online by CNN.

"One thing is happy, one thing is really not happy," Wang told CNN, expressing concern for the suspect. "Because he's just 19 years old."

"I hope he can change," she added.

Twitter users seemed surprised by the restaurant owners' actions.
