83-Year-Old Punter Helps Fight Off Three Armed Robbers At His Bookmakers In Ireland
This is the moment a heroic 83-year-old punter foils a robbery at bookmakers in Ireland and chases them out of the shop. Great-grandfather Denis O’Connor fought off the robbers, who were armed with hammers and wearing hoods and balaclavas, at the betting shop in Glanmire, Co Cork. The footage of the thwarted raid was caught on CCTV at around 6.30pm on Saturday evening. At the start of the clip, punters are seen watching TV screens while the shop manager, Tim Murphy, sits behind a counter. Suddenly three attackers burst in, wielding hammers and wearing hooded tracksuits before one of them leaps on the counter as Mr. Murphy tries to flee.
