Iraqi war vet is nobody’s victim! Armed robber learns the hard way

It was anything but easy pickings for a robber who sauntered into a Florida gas station demanding cash while brandishing a firearm.

The incident, captured on a surveillance video, shows an employee at the Sugar Creek Gas Station in Mims, FL, being led to a cash register at gunpoint on Tuesday. The robber handed the worker a bag to place the money in before the employee, who happened to be a U.S. military veteran, had enough.

At that point, the clerk, who had served multiple tours in Iraq, pounced on the burglar, the Brevard Times reported.

An intense scuffle ensued where the robber takes what looks like several severe blows to the head. It is isn’t long before the suspect runs from the premises, with the vet brandishing the crook’s firearm in hot pursuit.

It wasn’t until after the suspect escaped that the firearm was discovered to be a revolver-style airsoft gun, the Times reported.

Kudos to the Iraq War veteran who decided to take action. While the Brevard County Sheriff maintained he discourages citizens from actively engaging “criminals over money or personal possessions,” he said that he bets “this criminal thinks twice before taking on a U.S. Veteran again.”

Police are still looking for the suspect who fled in a maroon, four-door car with a white top that looks similar to a Lincoln Town Car.

He is described as a white male, approximately 19 – 22 years old, and 5’8” tall.

Anyone with any information is encouraged to call the Brevard Co. Police Dept., or CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS.
