[Watch] This 58 Year Old Sikh Man in NewYork Fought With An Armed Robber With Slippers
Surveillance cameras caught how 58-year-old Amrik Singh fought off a shotgun-wielding masked robber using only his slipper in the store at his petrol station in Staatsburg, about 150 km from New York City.
“When the gunman jumped back, I threw the slipper and hit him on the nose,” Singh said. “I ran and caught him and we were like wrestling.”
Singh said: “He did not expect an old man to fight him. He ran outside and I chased him. He fired a shot at my feet, but it missed and hit the ground and he drove away.”
Singh immigrated to the US from Doburji in Punjab’s Moga district 35 years ago and has owned the Citgo petrol station and store for 19 years.
‘NY Police don’t recommend such acts of Bravery’ – said NY Police Trooper Melissa McMorris, “Thank God, the store owner wasn’t hurt in the confrontation.” She says
