DAYTON, Ohio -- A gun-toting 90-year-old Ohio man scared a robber out of his business.

A man came into laundromat on Monday afternoon and demanded money from the owner, 90-year-old George Hicks. Hicks grabbed his gun and chased the robber out the door.

He then called 911:

911 Dispatcher: "Did he take any money?"
Hicks: "No. No. When he shoved me, I jumped up and went for my gun and when I went for my gun I said I'll blow your (expletive) brains out and he was gone."

Hicks, the laundromat owner, said this isn't the first time he has been targeted. In 2010, he was beat up and robbed inside his business.
