An 83-year-old man was captured on surveillance video serving to to foil an tried theft at an off-track betting parlor in Eire along with his naked palms and a stool.
The incident started Saturday at Bar One Racing in County Cork when three folks, armed with hammers and what seemed to be a firearm, entered the store.
That’s when octogenarian Denis O’Connor, who was inside, shortly went behind the counter the place two of the would-be robbers had cornered store supervisor Tim Murphy. O’Connor may be seen within the video combating off two of the attackers whereas Murphy fought the third.
Because the attackers ran off, O’Connor grabbed a stool and at last compelled them out of the shop, empty-handed.
“It’s good to see that the theft was prevented,” police superintendent Mick Comyns, who’s investigating the incident, stated in a radio interview with Cork’s RedFM Monday. “However the penalties, the result, might have been a lot worse.
“Our recommendation to folks is, don’t tackle individuals who are available to commit against the law.”
Murphy declined ABC Information’ request for remark and messages to O’Connor went unanswered.
