It’s not a scene from a film. The incident took place in a Carnes Cares store in Monterreym, Mexico. The robber acted swiftly and pointed a gun at a woman behind the cash register.

What he hadn’t planned for was an attack from a man in a cowboy hat. Like a scene out of a movie, the man in the hat tackled the man in the gun. Another employee from the establishment joined in, and the would-be robber was overpowered.

If only all real-life heists could end this way!
