One of the worst cuttings I've ever seen was a guy who had a small pocket knife with a blade less than 3 inches long. He grabbed his victim in a bear-hug, and literally cut shoestrings out of his back muscles.

The security guard in this You-tube incident was constantly moving away from the knife, and sticking in parts of his body to be cut and stabbed. He did nothing to attempt to actually stop the attacker because he was busy trying to back up and push off. He was lucky that others pitched in and beat the guy off with chairs and sticks, or he'd probably be dead now.

It would have made sense for him to pick up his stool when he stood up, and use it to either fend the guy off, or beat the bejesus out of him with it. Obviously not a "highly trained security professional"...

I feel sad for him...

I think that even a highly trained professional would have difficulty in such a situation...

I agree that was a tough. No matter if you were trained or not that guy was taking shots to the head over and over again. What were they hitting him with? Is the guard ok or was he cut I couldn't tell.

Whether the attacker was on something or not, his resilience was very impressive.

Complete unawareness from the guard. If you watch the tape, note that the guards head moves, to look at the assailant when he tried to open the wrong side of the door. This is at or about the ten second mark, from here he has about seven seconds before the knife is fully out. The fact that he survived was nothing short of a miracle.

And the assailant was definately doped up.

I believe, by the way the rod bent, that the owner was hitting the attacker with a metal broom handle or something of similar thickness.

One thing we do not know is the condition of the victim after the assault. Is he alive? What were his injuries? It's really hard to judge how effective his defense was without knowledge of the outcome.




Voice over mentions that the guard was taken to hospital and, incredibly, discharged that night. Was it effective? Am sure it could've went better for the guard (easy to sit at our keyboards and say that thought) but heck, any one you can walk away from with no lasting damage is a success in my book.

I agree. Despite the guard making some terrible decisions as to situational awareness I guess he had some fast hands, good skills and put them to work. I'm sure luck played a part too.

I think adrenaline was a bid factor in it.

Poor position for security, fairly obvious in a robbery anyone by the door is going to be the first one threatened or sucker punched. Also you'd think people behind the counter would have reacted faster although when the response came it was effective.
