Watch: How marine expert disarms robber breaking into the gas station store

An armed robbery attempt at a petrol station business was recently prevented thanks to a quick response by a US Marine Corps veteran.

The incident, which was captured by the store’s CCTV camera, is now going viral, with the veteran receiving praise online.

The client, who had previously served in the elite armed forces, was in the early hours of the morning at the business in Yuma, Arizona, when two masked guys stormed in, one of them was wielding a revolver.

When the armed suspect approached a store customer and pointed his gun at the cashier, the customer promptly disarmed him.

The two other suspects, one of whom was spotted outside the store’s entrance, fled the scene after the veteran disarmed him, according to footage provided by the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office (YCSO).

Just on the police department’s own Facebook page, the CCTV film has racked up millions of views, and it has been extensively shared on other platforms as well.

Here’s the video:

The incident occurred at 4:30 a.m. at a Chevron gas station on 10747 E North Frontage Road in Yuma, according to authorities.

“Upon arrival, deputies learned of three suspects entering the Chevron, one of them armed with a handgun,” according to the statement.

“The other two suspects fled the area when they witnessed their fellow criminal stopped.” They further stated that no one was hurt in the event.

According to KCRG, YCSO authorities stated the Marine Corps veteran was able to restrain the offender until the cops came. The other two suspects are still at large, according to the law enforcement agency.
