Cambridge Jeweller Chris Hopper Tackles Robber Who Holds Gun To His Head: Video

by | 24th, February 2011

HERE’S a video of Chris Hopper, a partner at Harvey Daly Jewellers in Peterborough, Cambs, dealing with an armed robber. The robber has a gun.

Says he:

“I looked out the corner of my eye and saw this gun. It is not the sort of thing you see every day but I just saw red and thought ‘how dare they?’ I thumped the one holding the gun but the other one was trying to grab a fistful of gold chains.

“I managed to throw him over the counter but I think he got some gold. I then chased him out shouting and screaming.”

The thief leaves the shop and barges into Deivydas Jacikas. Her forces one of the men to drop the handgun.

“When he took the gun out and pointed it at me I didn’t know if it was loaded. I only had a second to think but I was scared. I hadn’t seen the gun before I grabbed him but I still would have tried to stop him even if I knew it was there. I have never seen a revolver before and I thought I was going to die. I have had nightmares now about what happened – I could easily have died. I am very lucky to be alive.”

Do you know them?
