This actually happened in a place where gun laws are very strict.
It just goes to show you: if you make guns illegal, only criminals will have guns.
Dramatic video from the UK captured the moment a fake Amazon worker armed with a shotgun received a delivery of heavy blows from his intended victim, who managed to disarm him and wait for cops to arrive.
Vicente Forde, 32, walked up to the front door on Crystal Palace Road in the affluent London neighborhood of Dulwich on July 13, 2020, holding an empty box and concealing the gun in his yellow jacket, My London reported.
When the homeowner — whose young daughter was on the phone with a friend — opened the door, Forde pulled out the firearm and pointed it at the victim, according to the news outlet.
The quick-thinking resident grabbed the weapon and fought with the faux deliveryman, who shouted at him to let go of the gun or he would stab him.
As he screamed out for help, the victim managed to wrestle the weapon from the goon and throw it under a car.
Several people, include nearby workers, rushed to his aid and restrained the assailant until cops arrived.
The victim was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated for a broken nose and bruises.
Forde, whose shotgun was loaded with two live cartridges, pleaded guilty Monday at Croydon Crown Court to possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
He pleaded guilty earlier to possession of a prohibited weapon and possession of a firearm by a person prohibited.
