Security video captured the moment an attempted robbery went hilariously wrong. The clip showed a robber running up to a man and aggressively shoving a gun into his face. However, the intended victim delivered a brutal beatdown that left the failed thief shrieking in the fetal position.
The video went viral for capturing the embarrassing failed robbery. The clip, which is captioned “Armed robbery in San Leandro, CA doesn’t go as planned,” seems to have originated on a subreddit thread called “Public Freakout.” The video has up to millions of views for good reason.
The short video clip begins with what looks to be a young man and his accomplice running up to an unsuspecting victim. The robbers shoved a gun in the unsuspecting man’s face. In the video, the victim begins to back up slowly before the robbers discover that their intended victim isn’t as helpless as they would like.
The man rapidly changes the narrative by punching the robber, twisting him around into a bear hug, and body-slamming him on the pavement. The armed robber can be heard shouting “Oh, okay! Okay!” in shock as his accomplice panics and begins to back away.
The gun can be heard scraping across the concrete as the young man’s body smashes into the pavement. The man then bears down on the robber, who lets out a series of ear-shattering shrieks. Adding to the ridiculousness of the situation, the failed robber’s accomplice whines an unconvincing “hey, let him go,” while standing at a safe distance from the hero.
The video resulted in a whirlwind of hilarity and criticism over the duo’s initially brazen attitudes. The prideful attitudes of the robbers quickly devolved into the frightened reactions of a pair of children who were caught doing something they shouldn’t be doing.
Incredibly, the clip ends with the man benevolently letting the pair go. He told the would-be robbers to get the “f— out of here.” Unsurprisingly, the terrified duo sprints away in a panic, leaving the gun used to commit the attempted robbery behind.
While the man was gracious enough to let the pair go without serious injury or punishment, many comments pointed out that he should have kept the young man detained until police arrived. However, such a response may not have been feasible if the accomplice decided to intervene or, worse, grab the gun.
