The incident occurred on the 28th May, at a takeaway shop located in Christchurch, New Zealand.
The masked robbery suspect enters premises at approximately 10:48pm, he places a small backpack on the counter and pulls out a hand gun. He points the gun at Said Ahmed, a worker at the takeaway.
Whilst this was happening Said is packing a brown bag for his previous customer and he continues to do so as the masked gunman threatens him with his weapon.
Said, leans over casually with the neatly packed brown bag and indicates to his confused customer that his order is ready, the customer takes his food and leaves in haste.
Said then proceeds to go to the back of the store, as the armed robber gives up, takes his backpack,gives a little wave of his handgun to a possible accomplice outside in a car and leaves the takeaway.
Ahmed who put his customer first, told the Guardian, “The man wanted to frighten me and I decided he couldn’t do that,I passed the customer his food because I wanted him to leave the shop and not be in any danger."
Canterbury Police who are investigating the robbery, are still looking for the failed armed robbery suspect.
