The shocking pictures above taken by a member of the public shows the moment a
suited City worker attempted to tackle a machete-wielding robber to the
ground. Pedestrians looked on in horror as three masked raiders smashed
their way into Carr Watches and Diamonds near Liverpool Street station
in central London during a daytime robbery yesterday Jan. 22nd. As the gang tried
to make their getaway on two mopeds, the have-a-go hero jumped onto the
back of one of the robbers and tried to drag him to the ground. The raider
then threatened the man with a long knife before running off into the
busy streets. Two of the suspects got away from the jewellers while
another was arrested nearby. (Source – UK Daily Mail) See the dramatic photos after the cut…
