This bro had a ‘get rich quick’ scheme. It didn’t go as planned.
He didn’t expect an older man to thwart his carefully orchestrated scheme.
John Ryall, 38, tried to rob a Pennsylvania bank, but he gets his taken down by 63-year old Robert Satosky, a customer of the bank.
Surveillance video shows a man believed to be homeless man John Ryall, 38, rushing into Honesdale National Bank in Scott Township, Pennsylvania, wearing a mask and waving a gun around.
As the man gets a clerk to put money in his bag however, he is tackled out of nowhere by Robert Sakosky, 63
This would-be robber was taken down by a guy almost double his age.
And he doesn’t just get taken down, the hero makes sure he takes away his gun, the bag of money, and yanks off the robber’s mask.
After the tackle, Sakosky and the robber struggle off camera. When they come back into view, Sakosky takes the gun from the man and throws the bag of money across the room.
Sakosky managed to get the man’s mask off so he let go. The unmasked robber ran out of the bank.
And he wasn’t done there. When police arrived, he directed police where the suspect fled.
Watch the WNEP report:
Customers and neighbors think that Sakosky is a hero.
People living and working near the bank call Sakosky a hero.
“He is exceptionally brave to have done that,” said Donna Shaw. “I certainly would not have encountered anyone with a gun. I wouldn’t have tried to do it.”
“To be honest with you, it’s good to see a Samaritan take down someone that’s doing a robbery over there,” said Nick Olmstead. “You know, it’s actually nice to know that we have a community that’s willing to help out.”
As for Ryall…
Ryall faces a slew of charges including robbery and making terroristic threats. He is locked up in the Lackawanna County Prison. He’s due in court next week.
That awesome bro that took down this armed bank robber was an absolute badass.
Maybe he’s a grandpa, too.
If he is, I’ll bet his grandkids are proud of him.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
