Have-A-Go Heroes Foil Thurnscoe Armed Robber

Thursday February 6 2014



SHOCKING CCTV footage that shows a daring shop owner fight back against an armed robber has been obtained by We Are Barnsley.

The knife-wielding robber was foiled in a daring scrap by two have-a-go heroes this week as they attempted to hold him down until police arrived.

The full story - with interviews - will be covered in tomorrow's Barnsley Chronicle, who gave us the footage.

Oh my god! how brave are they!! All that effort and he would probably have got away with community service anyway. Well done to them both though, maybe he will think twice next time.

Who do the robbers think they are. It is bad real bad when people cannot go to their place of employment without being attacked. IT is nasty. Good for you for trying to fight back. I hope you are not hurt.
