WINSLOW TWP., N.J. - September 12, 2012 (WPVI) -- Police in Camden County are searching for a would-be bandit who got an unexpected surprise Wednesday afternoon when a pharmacist turned the tables on him.
It happened at about 2:00 p.m. at Jolin's Pharmacy in the 400 block of Sicklerville Road in Winslow Township.
The Camden County Prosecutor's office tells Action News that one man entered the business and demanded a prescription painkiller, Oxycontin, from the owner, pharmacist John Agyemang.
Rather than comply with the demand, prosecutors say, Agyemang pulled out a handgun and fired several times at the man.

Interesting trivia about the pharmacist:
Agyemang is a Akan surname.
“The Akan people are an ethnic group found in West Africa, predominantly in Akanland who form a historical nationality in southern Ghana. The Akans also inhabit eastern Ivory Coast. Ethnic Akans are the majority in both of these countries and have a population of roughly 20 million.
“From the 15th century to the 19th century the Akan people dominated gold mining and trading in the region and, from the 17th century on, they were among the most powerful groups in west Africa.
“The (Akan) Empire of Ashanti was active in the African and Atlantic slave trade, waging war on African states to capture people sold as slaves to the Ashanti empire and the other West African states of the period.
“They fought against European colonists to maintain autonomy (War of the Golden Stool 1900). By the early 1900s all of Akanland was a colony or protectorate of the British.”
