MMA Fighter Unleashes BRUTAL Response When Man Tries to Rob a Bank Right in Front of Him

So, what would YOU do if you realized the man standing in front of you at the bank was trying to rob the place? Well, MMA fighter Eric Haritakis didn’t stand idly by. He took action and smacked down the robber.

“I saw the right time and I realized that if he had a weapon that he would have drawn it already. I just timed it right and took him down,” the fighter said to WFTS-TV.

The suspect, Michael Jon Neubecker, handed the clerk at the counter a note but apparently never pulled a weapon. But that didn’t stop him from getting an undisclosed amount of cash and leaving the bank. When the man standing in line behind him realized what was happening, he quickly got out of line and followed Neubecker.

When he apprehended the thug, the hero brought him back in front of the credit union and proceeded to hog tie him using duct tape. The perp didn’t realize that it was Mixed Martial Arts fighter, Eric Haritakis behind him who was ready to take him down. Haritakis held Neubecker down until the police arrived.

Way to go, Mr. Haritakis!
