58-year-old fights off armed robber with slippers
In this surveillance camera footage, 58-year-old Amrik Singh fights off a shotgun-wielding masked robber using only his slipper in the store at his petrol station in Staatsburg, about 150 km from New York City. “I’m not really a hero. And I would not want to be a hero. I am just a working man,” he was quoted as saying. Singh, who immigrated to the US from Doburji in Punjab’s Moga district 35 years ago and has owned the Citgo petrol station and the store for 19 years, said he did not have a strategy or a conscious plan to confront the gunman.
