Unconventional Self Defense: FL Store Clerk Tricks Armed Robber Into Filling Out Job Application
This isn’t a normal self defense story for this site, but the quick thinking action of a Florida store clerk may have saved her life. After a seventeen year old man drew a gun on the clerk she managed to diffuse the situation by getting the robber to fill out a job application (he did, and put down all of his personal details).
When the clerk managed to talk the man into going outside for a cigarette she used the opportunity to call police. By the time they arrived, the robber was gone. However, police were easily able to find the suspect – using the information he put down on the job application.
