A man washing his car late at night narrowly evaded an attack by chasing a pair of armed hijackers away with a hose.

At 2am on Monday morning, the man was giving his car a rinse in Shreveport, Louisiana, when he was startled by the sudden appearance of two thieves holding handguns.

The car owner approached one of the armed men while still holding the hose, and managed to fend them off by spraying them with the hose.

The pair quickly fled as the man soaked them, while his brother captured the incident on camera from inside the vehicle.
