"He said, 'Give me your keys and your money,' and I said, 'What'd you say?' And I took the sprayer and just sprayed it right in his face," Davis told KSLA-TV said. "I heard his friend try to run and get my backside so I turned around and sprayed him and hit him and they took off running. The whole situation to me was almost surreal."

In Davis' car was his disabled brother. 

"If they would've taken my keys and my money, they probably would have shot me anyway, plus I had my disabled veteran brother in the car, they could've done something to him as well," Davis told KSLA-TV. 

The two suspects have not been arrested.
