PETALING JAYA: Many would shudder at the mere thought of crossing paths with anyone with a gun, let alone fight with one.
But this was not the case with Bangladeshi Tareem Islah Taraz.
The 23-year-old tackled a robber from behind, as he saw his colleague at a petrol station being threatened at gunpoint, The Star Online reported.
The drama unfolded about 5pm on Sunday when a gun-wielding robber rushed into the petrol station and shouted at the cashier, also a Bangladeshi, to hand over the day’s takings.
His threats went unheeded, as the cashier walked off the cash counter. It was then that Tareem, who was on duty at the petrol pump area, sneaked up from behind the robber as the latter was rummaging for cash behind the counter.
Caught off guard, the robber fired three shots – one of which hit Tareem on the waist, while two others, hit the ceiling and the shelf.
According to the news portal, the 33-year-old suspect was pinned down by the petrol station
