This robber really does get the scare of his life, and he couldn’t run away any faster.

A robber had the surprise of his life after the woman he attempted to rob at gunpoint pulled a gun on him in west Houston.

On Jan. 16, a man entered a hotel lobby in the 14800 block of Katy Freeway with a rifle and demanded money from the cash drawer from the hotel clerk.

Officials say while he was climbing over the counter, the woman pulled out her own handgun and aimed it at the suspect. . . .
