MIDLOTHIAN, Texas – A firefighter is being credited with taking down an attempted robber with his bare hands until police arrived.
On June 26, officers were called to a Midlothian gas station after a man attempted to rob the clerk.
Fortunately, Daniel Gaskey was there.
The man shoved Gaskey aside and demanded money from the clerk.
When he pulled out a knife, Gaskey jumped into action. He forced the man to the ground and held him until police arrived moments later.
Gaskey is a former Marine and has been with the Mansfield Fire Department for over a year.
Authorities say Dylan Bearden was arrested for aggravated robbery.
