Aggressive mugger Jason Dunne pointed a gun at an 18-year-old student and asked, “do you want to be shot?'’
He asked for the man’s cell phone but got something more harsh.
Thinking quickly, the student said “wow what’s that over there?’'
Dunne fell for it and looked, giving the young man enough time to punch the bad guy in the face and run away. It got worse for the now swelling crook.
Security cameras at Manchester University caught the scene and led to Dunne being arrested.
A cop chuckled as he pointed out “it may have been the oldest trick in the book but it certainly got the better of Dunne.”
He continued by praising the teenager. “He had great presence of mind to come up with a trick like that to get away from a man waving a gun at him.''
After his arrest, it was discovered the gun Dunne was waving, wasn’t real.
Fake or not, Dunne will be charged with attempted robbery, having an imitation firearm with intent to commit an indictable offense.
