(July 15, 2015) – A firefighter wouldn’t just stand by when a man tried to rob a Texas gas station.
Video from CBS DFW shows the robber pushing past the firefighter to make his way to the counter. The firefighter then tackles him from behind and restrains him until police arrive.
The firefighter, a former Marine, said he couldn’t stand by and let the robber, who was armed with a knife, carry out the crime. Security footage from the June 26 has just been released.
