Video: 71-year-old foils robbery by pulling gun on teen criminals
…and he wasted no time in taking aim and firing.

SEVENTY-ONE-YEAR -old Samuel Williams wasted no time in leaping from behind his computer brandishing a weapon when the internet cafe he was in was ambushed by armed robbers.

Sky News reports that two 19-year-olds entered the internet cafe in Florida armed with a baseball bat and a gun and threatened customers.

Williams fired at them using his own gun – for which he has a licence – and the pair fled the scene. Both were arrested.
