A robbery crew on a motorcycle in New York carried out at least for robberies on Saturday afternoon, until a good Samaritan took their weapon away.
A video captured the moment the New Yorker yanks the gun away from the assailants mid-robbery in Fort George. The video, posted on Instagram, has since gone viral.
“It was like something you see out of a movie. How are they going to try to rob someone in broad daylight?” a resident who witnessed the drama told The New York Post on Monday.
The video shows two suspects on a motorcycle chasing a 28-year-old man and cornering him against a wall, where they begin to hit him. One of the suspects attempt to steal something from him, holding a gun against him, while the other holds on to the motorcycle.
At that moment, another man appears from behind and grabs the gun from the assailant’s hand. A struggle ensues, but eventually, the two suspects flee and leave the man with their gun.
