HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – A jewelry store owner in Hollywood was captured on surveillance video fighting off a would-be robber.

The attempted robbery was reported around 2:30 p.m. March 2 at DSH Oakwood Jewelers at 2897 Stirling Road, according to News 6 sister station WPLG.

“He came over here and he say, ‘I purchase two chains two or three months ago and it’s broken.’ I say, ‘No problem. I have a jeweler over here. We’ll fix it for you — no charge,'” owner Daniel Setton said.

But Setton, 74, told Local 10 News reporter Ian Margol that the man demanded a new one and got upset when Setton told him, “No.”

According to Hollywood police Officer Christian Lata, the man then walked to a restricted area where gold chains are kept.
