These two wannabe robbers just didn't know who they were messing with.
As KPRC reports, an attempted robbery ended up poorly for the bad guys after they jumped a Fuel Depot employee returning from the bank with a money bag.
They must have had no idea who his co-worker was, otherwise they probably wouldn't have chosen to rob the gas station.
Working at the cash register when the assault happened was Mayura Dissanyake, a semi-professional mixed martial arts fighter. And as we can see on the surveillance footage, in an instant, he put his skills to incredible use.
"The first guy I saw, I just kicked him in the face," he said. "Then I punched the other guy."
"I just kicked him until he lays down on the floor," he said. "Until he stopped moving cause I wasn't sure if he had a knife or a gun so I wanted him to stop moving."
Crime stops when ordinary people stand up and fight back. Fuel Depot is lucky to have an employee like Dissanyake, and we're pretty lucky it was caught on tape.
