James Kelcer ha detto “Sala stampa americana” si prende la sua sicurezza personale, e la sicurezza degli altri, “molto seriamente.”

Three unidentified people entered the store with one armed frontman leading the way.

I saw two other guys with no other weapons and decided that’s the guy that I’m going to hit,” Kelcer says.

I was actually going to take control of his head and the gun at the same time, and the bag just happened to be heavy and attached to me and it smashed him right in the face,” Kelcer said.

While the gas station clerk wasa little worked up” sull'incidente, according to Kelcer, he jumped over the counter to chase the suspects.

Kelcer credited his Marine Corps training’s muscle memory of knowing what to do in such incidents in addition to beingmentally preparedwhen the attempted robbery occurred.

The armed juvenile suspect was arrested and taken into the Yuma County Juvenile Justice Center on one count each of armed robbery and aggravated assault. The search continued for the two other suspects who escaped.
