He was charged with the aggravated robbery of the GJR Dairy on Waltham Rd, Sydenham, just after 2pm on Sunday. During the knife-point robbery one of the offenders was struck with a meat cleaver by the dairy owner. The dairy owner had retreated to a back room before running back in with the meat cleaver. Footage of the robbery was caught on security camera. “They started threatening me with the knife and waving it around. I thought: ‘It’s either going to be him or me, and it’s not going to me,’ so I thought I’d better get back,” the dairy owner told Stuff. “After it happened to the wife I thought there’s no way they’re going to do it to me. I’m going to go on the offensive and defend what I’ve got,” the man said. “I work 100 hours a week for about $2 an hour, and for some little a******* to come in and take that.”
