TULSA, Oklahoma -

An 84-year-old man was able to turn the tables on a robber who hit him in the face and took his wallet.

Doug Jandebeur wasn't too flustered about being robbed Monday night in front of his business near 71st and Lewis, especially after he was able to send the robber running away in fear.

Video shows Jandebeur walked to his black truck when the robber came up behind him.

“The guy starts saying, ‘Don't turn around, don't turn around,'" Jandebeur said.

At first he thought it was one of his buddies playing a trick until the robber punched him in the side of the face.

"I felt him take my billfold out and he head over to the door where my wife was," said Jandebeur.

The robber stopped near the door - like he was looking inside the billfold – then, all of a sudden, he took off running.

We asked what scared the man off, Jandebeur said, "I pulled out my automatic and was getting ready to ventilate him."

He pulled his gun out of his left pocket, and that's when the tables were turned, and the robber was the one afraid.

"Once he saw my gun he decided to leave," Jandebeur said.

Other than a big bruise on his face, Jandebeur was in pretty good spirits. He said it's just one more event in his pretty eventful life.

He hopes the guy gets caught and he's thankful that nearby Video Revolution put up cameras and caught the whole thing on tape, including a shot of the robber's face.

Footage also shows, earlier in the evening, the guy waited around, hid behind a pillar and waited around some more, until Jandebeur went outside so he could strike, but was caught off guard.

"Anybody who doesn't arm themselves is asking for trouble," Jandebeur said.

If you recognize the man in the video, you can call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
