Thankfully no one was hurt, and how fortunate that a stand-up citizen had access to a legal firearm and was able to thwart a bank robbery.

Torres then pulled a 9mm pistol on the robber before he left the branch building.

“That’s when I took him down. The whole thing lasted three to four minutes. The tellers were all nervous,” said Torres, who ordered the robber to get on the ground.

Interesting part of the article is that Mr. Torres had another brush with a more violent criminal a while back. This guy is like the Lumpy Lambert of Palm Bay.
