(KSDK) - A Florida man got an unpleasant surprise while celebrating the Fourth of July with his family on New Smyrna Beach.

He found two middle-aged women taking down his canopy tent and accuses the pair of attempting to steal it and other beach possessions.

When he tells the women he will let the incident slide, they lash out at him.

One of the women even appears to hit him in an attempt to stop him from recording on his camera phone.

Luckily, the man caught enough footage to share on YouTube, which can be seen below.
