A man managed to fight off a pistol-wielding thug with a jar of instant coffee during an attempted car-jacking.
The victim, known only as Jason stopped to buy the Nescafe Blend 43 and cigarettes at service station in Frankston, Melbourne on Tuesday night.
He was attacked as he was walking back to his car at around 9.40pm.
The thief demanded Jason hand over the keys to his Mercedes but the 48-year-old fought back, swinging at him with the jar and kicking him.
‘He had a handgun there and he pointed it at me and he said ‘give me your f***ing keys,’ the Melbourne man told 7 News.
‘As I kicked him he struck me on the top of the head with the firearm.’
The attacker then stole Jason’s cigarettes before fleeing the area in an unregistered maroon Commodore.
Jason, who was left with scratches on his forehead, admitted that the best thing to do would have been to give the thug his car keys.

‘I think most people probably should hand the keys over, but I’m sort of not one of those people,’ he said.
Police are still on the hunt for the man, describing him as being Caucasian and in his mid 20s.
He was wearing a grey top with a black bum bag as well as black pants and a maroon beanie.
Police are urging anyone with information to come forward.
