This is from the ‘9Now’ Report on the incident…
CCTV footage shows two men ramming the pharmacy’s glass doors in Yarrabilba, Logan City. Police allege the men took items from the business and attempted to flee the shop before a truck driver is filmed tackling one of the men to the ground.
The truck driver, known as ‘T’ to friends, said it all started like a normal day. He was running some magazines to Coles when he saw a lady waving him down. She informed him that two men were in the middle of a robbery.
At that point, Mr T decided to intervene.
“I walked over, stood in front of the door and then I looked down and I saw them, I was like, ‘mate, what are you up to?'” Mr T told Today.
At that point Mr T realised he could be in potential danger if they were armed.
“I took a step back and that is when the first fella just ran straight past me. I was like, ‘bro, you got away’. The second fella looked at me and I thought ‘you are not going anywhere, fella.’
“I just tackled that fella down. He was struggling at first and I said to him, ‘mate, you are wasting your breath, you are just going to make yourself tired’. After a little while he sort of just gave up.”
