Facing A Robber With A Knife - What To Do?
We do not want any trouble. All we want is to live a happy life. Sometimes when you face unfavorable situation, that is unexpected. You have no enemy. So you have no treats. Still, you have to go through some situations that you have never imagined before.
Only because of a few bad guys, a lot of people suffer. We have law enforcement agency to take care of this. Sometimes we are in a situation, get attacked out of nowhere, and we have no idea before. Suddenly, someone comes to you with a knife, puts his knife to your throat and take your money, cell phone and all valuable things.
So what can you do in this situation? Let's watch this video. We will talk about it in this post.
When someone puts a knife to your throat, it is already too late to run because if you move, the robber will use his knife. Then what happens? Anyway, we do not want that happen to us. I made a post about it a couple of days ago. You can read that post.
After watching this video, you have a better understanding of this situation. It looks like a hotel. And this is happening in front of the hotel. That means other people are there around you. When the guy puts the knife to your throat, if some people see that, they cannot move forward to help you because if they do, your life will be in danger. The robber will not stand there, he will stab you, take your money and run.
So when the robber asks to give your money or cell phone, just give that to him and don't give any obvious signal that you can attack him any time. At the time of getting your money or valuable things, he might get a little distracted. And that's the moment to make your move.
What you see in this video, you can do that. Move his hand in a circle and lock his wrist. Then you can take his knife away and control the situation. I think this is effective if you can do that in the right time and do it fast. If you are slow making this move, you will find it difficult to make it work for you.
The only problem I see is that if the attacker pulls this knife seeing your move, then he has the leverage. The robber can attack you again. If you pulls his knife, you can step back and make a distance. Since this is a place where people are around you. You can ask for help and if other people see that, hopefully, they will come and help you.
