A pair of armed thieves bit off more than they could munch when they tried to rob a guy in Philadelphia this week, according to reports.
The stunning event unfolded just before 2 g. m. on Monday within the City of Brotherly Love.
The particular victim, a 46-year-old male, was ambushed by a believe wielding a gun on a pavement near the intersection of Cheltenham Avenue and Erdick Road.
Surveillance footage released simply by authorities shows the man fighting for his life before turning the tables on his assailants.
The target can be seen grappling with the 1st suspect as they slam into a stop sign and then fall into the street.
Another suspect can be seen running down the road towards them and presumably pointing a firearm at them.
Incredibly, the victim manages to wrestle away the first suspect’s gun and apparently take the second suspect.
“ Authorities say it appears that the victim struck the second suspect one or more times, ” Fox 29 reports.
“ Both suspects after that fled in a dark-colored VEHICLE going south on the 5400 hundred block of Edrick Street. ”
The victim was found suffering from gunshot wounds to his backside and ankle. He has been taken to hospital in stable condition.
“ While law enforcement say it’s never a smart idea to fight armed robber, these people secretly admit ‘ this particular victim is a genuine badass, ‘” Fox 29’s Steve Keeley reported following the occurrence.
