This shopkeeper is part ninja, part crazy. In a split second, he is able to turn the tables on this armed robber by snatching his gun right from his hands.
This dramatic CCTV footage captures the moment a shop worker fearlessly disarms a man pointing a gun in his face as he attempts to rob the store.
Hunar Mohammed, 37, was working behind the counter at the shop in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire on Saturday night when a man came in and asked for cigarettes and alcohol.
As the father placed the items in a bag and worked out how much was owed, the armed man withdrew a gun and demanded the money from the till.
Displaying astonishing calm in the face of danger, Mr Mohammed snatched the weapon, which turned out to be a replica firearm, from the raider’s grasp in the blink of an eye and chased him off the premises.
If you watch the video closely, the robber briefly goes to look in the bag, and it’s that split second that the shopkeeper seizes his moment to snatch the gun away.
Wow, talk about fast. So many things could have gone wrong, but this particular case went so right.
