Two would-be robbers spent enough time casing a Houston business to know an employee was on his way back from the bank, but missed one crucial detail about another employee working at the time.
But then, how often do you encounter a semi-pro mixed martial arts fighter masquerading as a convenience store clerk?
As the first employee pulled up in front of the store after a bank run, two men are seen on the store’s surveillance camera jumping out of an SUV and trying to grab a bank bag he was carrying, KPRC reported.
At that moment, Mayura Dissanyake, a champion fighter in his native Sri Lanka, is seen running out of the store to the aid of his coworker.
And he proceeds to lay a whooping on the two men.
“The first guy I saw, I just kicked him in the face,” Dissanyake said. “Then I punched the other guy.”
One robber made it back to the SUV, the other was not so lucky — he was detained until police arrived.
“I just kicked him until he lays down on the floor,” the ex-fighter told KPRC. “Until he stopped moving cause I wasn’t sure if he had a knife or a gun so I wanted him to stop moving.”
