SAN PAOLA, Brazil (October 15, 2013)--Helmet-cam video of an armed man trying to steal a motorcycle out from under a rider in San Paola, Brazil, has gone viral.
The intended victim’s helmet-mounted camera was rolling as the rider stopped at an intersection, and the would-be-thief approached and attempted to steal the Honda Hornet at gunpoint.
An off-duty police officer drove up on the attempted theft and shouted a warning.
He shot the would-be thief when the man grabbed for a gun.
The suspect was taken to a hospital and is expected to recover.
