    Man Arrested After Robbery Prompts Guard to Open Fire at Santa Monica’s 3rd St. prome



    Man Arrested After Robbery Prompts Security Guard to Open Fire at Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade


    by Tracy Bloom, Chris Wolfe and Mark Kono,
    A knife-wielding man suspected of attacking a security guard and robbing an armored truck in downtown Santa Monica, leading to shots being fired near the Third Street Promenade, was arrested early Friday afternoon, police said.
    The man approached a Brinks Armored security guard in the area of Third Street and Arizona Avenue around 11:15 a.m., according to the Santa Monica Police Department.

    He then tried to stab the guard, who responded by shooting at him three times, police said in a news release.

    The assailant, who was not hit by the gunfire, fled the scene and was apprehended around 12:10 p.m.

    I learned years ago not to screw around with those armored truck guards. I had a job at a place that had a lot of part time positions for the nights and weekend shifts. One of the part time worker’s full time job was a Wells Fargo guard. His route also included the place I worked. One day he was making the pick up and one of the other employees tried joking with him about letting him have the bag. The guy reached toward the bag and the guard started to draw his sidearm in the store on.

    Shot at the would-be robber 3 times and missed!? Someone needs to send him back for training! He's a danger to all around him.

    Someone give the guard a pat on the back and a gift certificate for some better instruction and range time.

    Glad the stupid perp is off the streets, too bad the taxpayers will foot the bill for his incarceration and trial.

    I had a cousin who worked for Brinks and he could shoot the wings off a fly at 50ft. That guy needs to get back to the range daily.
    Humble yourself, for there is an enormous change coming.
