CCTV Footage Shows Terrorise Hero Shopkeeper Snatching Gun From Robber

This is the incredible moment a heroic shopkeeper threatened at gunpoint stood up to a robber and disarmed him, captured in stunning CCTV footage.

Hunar Mohammed was doing his usual day job behind the till at a store in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, when a man came in and asked to purchase booze and cigarettes.

But as the 37-year-old packed up the goods on Saturday night, the thug pulled out a gun and demanded money from the till.

Despite his life being at risk, the brave Mohammed grabbed the weapon and chased him out the store.

The weapon turned out to be a replica, which the shopkeeper, from Sulaymaniyah in Kurdistan, who came to the UK in 2010, was unaware of.

Speaking after the incident, he said: "It's the first time this has ever happened in my life but I wasn't that scared as everyone has guns in my country that they keep for security.

The shopkeeper has expressed his relief at having CCTV in the shop in order to aid the police in catching the criminal responsible. Having high quality CCTV can both provide evidence and even deter criminals from attempting such crimes in the first place.
