Seriously impressive moves
A 77-year-old United Kingdom man is being hailed a hero for the way he physically staved off an attempted mugging.
Video of the incident has hit the internet and has gone viral.
What are the details?
A 77-year-old man named Trevor boxed his way out of a potential knifepoint mugging earlier in February.
Trevor had just arrived at an ATM in Cardiff, Wales, when an unknown attacker approached the elderly gentleman and demanded cash, according to South Wales police.
Trevor was having none of it, and decided to fight back instead.
Breaking out some boxing moves, Trevor grabbed the man, held him in a shoulder lock, and began punching and jabbing the would-be assailant. The unidentified attacker apparently decided the holdup wasn't worth it, though, and began backing away from the elderly man. Law enforcement officials said that the attacker got away, but was unable to get any cash from Trevor.
Authorities released surveillance footage of the incident on Wednesday, lauding the elderly man for his bravery. Trevor was not hurt during the scuffle. Police are still searching for the suspect and encourage the public to reach out with any knowledge of the attempted assault and robbery.
South Wales Police Cardiff tweeted about the incident on TKTK, writing, "Detectives have been checking in on him and he's doing okay. He was shocked & very shaky after the incident, but thankful nothing worse had happened."
