A Belgium e-cigarette store owner, who was identified as Didier, got the fright of his life when six men entered his store with the intent to rob him.

According to BBC, Didier was pushed and shoved a couple of times but he did not give the thugs anything.

Instead he asked them to return at closing time, where he would have between two and three thousand euros, which totals between R33k and R49 000.

Surprisingly the robbers agreed and left the shop- giving Didier time to call the cops. However, Briefly.co.za learned the police did not think the men would return.

But, an hour before closing time, Didier spotted one of the robbers at the store's door. He told him it was not closing time yet and they should return at 18:30.

And, believe it or not, the robbers returned at closing time just to find the cops waiting for them in the back of the store.

Five men were reportedly arrested, one of which was a minor. The suspects have since been dubbed the dumbest robbers in Belgium.
