Here’s the way a holdup is supposed to go: Armed robber enters establishment and demands money. Patrons cover heads and cry. Proprietor graciously hands over the cash saying he just doesn’t want anybody to get hurt. Robber makes awkward sideways run to the door so as not to get tackled from behind and makes off scot-free until police catch up with him five minutes later.
This is not what happened at all in a pub located in the Netherlands recently. Not only was the gun-wielding robber not greeted with the expected screams of fear or the brave hero trying to calm him down before cowering on the ground himself, but he was completely ignored and couldn’t even muscle a pack of cigs from the crowd. Apparently, the regulars of this Rotterdam bar won’t let anything get in the way of their brewskis.
Watch the footage and interview with the pub owner:
As the clip shows, once the robber realized he wasn’t getting anything from the crowd — not even a second glance — he took off. That’s when the group decided to take action, leaving the bar to catch the would-be robber. They turned him over to the authorities.
