Pro tip – When making plans to rob a store using a knife, be certain that the guy you shove past in line doesn’t have military training.
A firefighter and retired Marine came to the aid of a Texas convenience store clerk who was being robbed at knife-point, using his years of military and fire training to take down the would-be criminal with his bare hands.
The man had brazenly pushed Daniel Gaskey aside, demanding money from the clerk while brandishing a knife.
Gaskey, who served for eight years in Iraq, sprang into action, putting himself in danger but recognizing that it “was the right thing to do.”
Via Fox News Insider:
This is what happens when you try to rob a convenience store right in front of a former Marine.
The would-be robber appeared to be unconcerned about Daniel Gaskey, a local Texas firefighter, standing right behind him as he pulled a knife and demanded money from the clerk.
Gaskey quickly turned the tables on the suspect, and the surveillance video of the June 26 incident has just been released.
Here is the video…
Incredible how the suspect, 19-year-old Dylan Bearden, had the audacity to brazenly shove Gaskey, a man who’s clearly twice his size, aside. It turned out to be his last mistake.
