Armed Good Samaritan Runs Off Terrified Robber

A concealed carrier in Memphis (TN) broke up a robbery last week and send the robber running for his life.

Officers were flagged down by a parking attendant who told police he was walking a woman to her car from Hernando Street.

An unknown suspect approached him from behind and hit him on the back of the head.

Police do not know what kind of weapon was used. The victim was then pushed to the ground, and the suspect started rummaging through his pockets.

A witness, who has his hand gun permit, saw what was going down, and pulled a gun on the suspect. Police said the suspect yelled, “I don’t have a gun,”  and hopped into a tan Toyota.

According to police, nothing was stolen from the victim. Luckily, he only suffered a minor bump and cut. He was not transported to a hospital.


Like most defensive gun uses, the mere presence of a firearm reminded the criminal that he had a pressing engagement across town.
