CCTV Shows British Shopkeeper Bravely Take on Gunman

By Simon Veazey, Epoch Times

Police have released CCTV footage of the moment a shopkeeper takes on an armed man in a local convenience store with his bare hands.

The armed man can be seen pointing his gun at the shopkeeper and assistant before they suddenly turn the tables on him.

British police are still looking for the would-be robber and are hoping the footage from Christmas Eve will help them identify him.

“We know the struggle continued outside and believe a number of passing vehicles slowed down and perhaps even stopped to witness the scuffle,” DC Gerry Maley from Force CID said in a statement from West Midlands police.

“As the footage shows the store’s owner and his assistant managed to overpower the assailant and wrestle him out of the shop in a matter of seconds.”

The incident took place at the Spend n Save store on Pleck Road in Walsall, England, and the footage was released on Jan. 19.
