Top 9 Surveillance Videos of the Week: Elderly Man Fights Off, Taunts Would-Be Robber

Other top surveillance videos of the week include thieves being chased off with bear spray, clumsy arsonists and much more.

In this week’s Top Surveillance Videos…

You’ve probably heard the saying, “respect your elders.” There’s a reason that saying exists. Our elders have years of life experiences and more knowledge than us. They’re tough. They’ve seen stuff.

Witness this 77-year-old man in the United Kingdom. Surveillance video shows him using an ATM when a man suddenly grabs him and demands his money. Not going down without a fight (literally), the elderly man puts his dukes up and squares off with the suspect.

They dance for a bit before the elderly man throws a boxing jab. He then even taunts the would-be robber, gesturing with his hand to come get some. I’d stand in this guy’s corner any day.

Also this week…

We’ve seen business owners and employees fight off robbers in a variety of ways, but this one is a first. Three would-be robbers enter a Washington pot shop expecting a big score.

Instead, they got the store owner spraying them in the face with bear spray — as in spray to fight off wild bears. Needless to say, the suspects quickly retreated. Empty-handed.

Make sure to check out the rest of this week’s top surveillance videos which include an airborne car, a brazen armed robbery and more!
