The person happened to be a woman who soon suffered the wrath of the suspect as an approximately 6-inch knife was place on her throat. The entire scenario gave the witnesses chills and spread distress in the bank.
As the tension grew, a bank employee displayed heroism as he decided to walk up to the robber, proposing to trade places with the lady. In the video showing the entire scene from the popular establishment, the woman was seen to have felt relieved from the situation while also reverberating a sense of gratitude towards the employee.
The robber's attempt was ultimately unsuccessful. Soon after the employee and the first victim switched places as hostages, the bank worker was able to successfully subdue the robber by grabbing his hands and stealing the knife from him. The bank's security guard assisted from behind until he and the employee were able to knock the robber down.
