This has to be one worst armed robbery attempts in history - and it's all captured on video surveillance camera!

Two teenage would-be robbers arrived at Marlene's jewelry in Fresno California last Friday. One of the suspects pulled out a handgun and demanded cash and jewelry from the store's employee. The second suspect then tries to leap over the counter while carrying on a conversation on his cell phone. He fails spectacularly, and things just go downhill from there!

The store's owner, Soledad Castaneda, was in a backroom when she heard her employee yelling. When she emerges with the shotgun, the robbers take off running.

Store owner Castaneda told KFSN-TV that she's angry these teen criminals with no jobs would put her hard-working family in danger to steal from them. But her brother, Jose Llamas, says although it was a scary ordeal for his family, he can't help but laugh when he sees the video.

Police are still looking for the suspects, who they believe may be 17 years old.
