While shopping at a deli in Adelaide Jamie Daddow found himself in a violent situation.
A robber, caught on CCTV, had pulled a knife on the shopkeeper and was attempting to steal cigarettes.
Which is when Jamie, a 6-foot tall former security guard, decided to step in.
“It was only a little knife and he (the robber) is a little fella, so to me it was like playing around with one of my kids,’ Jamie told 7 News.
He held the robber in a wrestling hold, and had a chat to him as police arrived.
‘I sat him down and told him ‘these are really stupid options’,’ Jamie said.
While the shop owner as expressed his gratitude, Jamie shrugs it off saying it’s what any normal person would do.
