CCTV Captures Military Veteran Stopping Armed Robbery

An armed robber in Arizona got the surprise of his life when an attempted robbery was halted by an ex-Marine.

The masked man, entering a petrol station armed with a shotgun alongside a friend, pointed his weapon towards the counter, but wasn’t banking on a trained military combat expert being a customer in the store at the same time.

Which is precisely when his entire operation went completely down the toilet.

The gunman is tackled to the ground by the customer and loses his gun in the melee.

When deputies asked the customer how he was able to take control of the situation so confidently, the Yuma native said, “The Marine Corp taught me not to [mess] around.”

A press release from Yuma County Sheriff’s Office read: “On Wednesday, October 20, 2021, at approximately 4:30 AM, Deputies responded to an armed robbery report at the Chevron located at 10747 E. North Frontage Road.

“Upon arrival, Deputies learned of three suspects entering the Chevron, one of them armed with a handgun. The armed suspect walked next to a store customer while pointing the weapon toward the cashier when the customer acted immediately and disarmed him. 

“The other two suspects fled the area when they witnessed their fellow criminal stopped.”

“The customer was able to detain the suspect he disarmed until law enforcement arrived.

“The suspect detained during the incident was a juvenile and was booked into the Yuma County Juvenile Justice Center for one count of armed robbery and one count of aggravated assault. The other two suspects are still currently outstanding.

“No injuries reported from any of the victims. This case remains under investigation.”

Maybe next time just rob somewhere there’s no other customers, mate?
