Man On A Cycling Tour Gets Robbed At Gunpoint And It’s All Caught On Tape.

This is some scary stuff amigo!

While on a cycling tour of Buenos Aires in Argentina, Youtube user Mike Graziano got robbed at gunpoint in broad daylight when a thief attempted to steal his backpack which was holding a lot of expensive camera gear.

The thief, who was riding a motorcycle, came up to him on a cycling path and tried to stop him. At first Mike had no idea what was going on and just kept on cycling, but moments later the thief caught up with him again and that’s when he pulled out a pistol and started demanding his backpack.

Mike happened to be recording at the time with his GoPro camera attached to his forehead. Watch how it all unfolded in this amazing piece of footage below:

Who Knew Candy Was Such A Good Way To Fend Off Robbers?

Some gas station attendants keep mace or even a gun behind their counter to fend off robbers, but this guy? All he needed were a few fistfuls of candy!

As the security footage shows, the attendant is simply strolling through his store when he notices a car speed into the parking lot. A man jumps out, brandishing a weapon…

It’s moments like these when the fight-or-flight instinct kicks in, and this guy is determined to stand his ground. He grabs the only thing he can reach and prepares for battle.

Watch as he fights off a robber by throwing handfuls of candy at him. I never would have thought to use treats as a defense, but it sure was effective!

You Go To The Gas Pump To Fill Up, Not Get Robbed Like These People Did…

We all do it: we’re pumping gas and we turn away from the car to look at our phone or maybe even go into the store to get snacks. But think about this — did you leave your car unlocked? Odds are, you may have, and that’s when these criminals strike.

Police are calling them sliders, and it’s easy to see why when you watch them sliding between cars and slipping away with people’s personal belongings and wallets!

The best thing you can do to prevent this from happening to you? Lock your car, bring your belongings with you when you go inside, or tuck them away where no one can see them.

Lesson learned: always remain alert — even during the most mundane of errands.
