Robbery victim wrestles gun from suspect (VIDEO)


The victim of an early morning robbery near Temple University in Philadelphia on Monday turned the tables on his attacker when he wrestled the suspect’s gun from him.

The victim told police the suspect approached him and asked to borrow his cell phone, but when the victim pulled out his phone, the suspect pulled out a gun.

The two became engaged in a tussle, during which time, the 34-year-old victim was shot in the leg. The injured victim, however, was able to wrestle the suspect’s gun away from him and run away, while the suspect fled from the scene on a bicycle.

The victim then ran to a nearby police station for help, and was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

The suspect remains at large.
