Yay, a brave (if not foolish) Domino's Pizza employee, Harish Karan, who had never seen a gun before, tackled a gunman Wednesday night at a Toronto location who was trying to steal cash from the register. And then three other employees joined in, holding him down, yanking off the burglar's cap, and even hitting him a couple of times. Police warn that fighting an armed robber is not usually the best thing to do.
According to CBC News:
While Karan and his colleagues seemed only proud of themselves, Toronto police say that no one should ever try to fight someone who is armed, unless it's a case of life and death.
"Let's face it, we're just talking about money in a store that's insured," Const. David Hopkinson said. "Had they not gotten hold of the gun and someone had been shot, we'd be talking about how completely senseless this was."
Police arrived at the Kingston Road pizza shop around 9:10 p.m. Wednesday, finding the assailant on the ground — held there by the group of employees.
Attacking a gunman might not be smart, but it sure is satisfying to watch.
