Tulsa resident Doug Jandebeur thought a friend was playing a trick on him when he heard a voice behind him saying, “Don’t turn around.” It turned out to be a mugger who stole his wallet and punched him in the face, leaving him on the ground in a strip mall parking lot.
As the robber headed toward the door of Jandebeur’s office, where Doug’s wife was, the criminal stopped to look at the contents of the wallet. That’s when Jandebeur made his move… and the mugger bolted.
“I pulled out my automatic and was getting ready to ventilate him,” Jandebeur told local Newson6.
Despite the bruise on his face, Jandebeur is in good spirits about the incident. “Once he saw my gun he decided to leave,” said Jandebeur.
The surveillance video was quickly made public and police are asking for the public’s help in determining the identity of the attacker.
“Anybody who doesn’t arm themselves is asking for trouble,” Jandebeur said.
If you recognize the man in the video, you can call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
