Pretty brave in the circumstances. Proof if proof were needed that de-escalation skills can be an effective way to prevent violence.

During the incident on 23 July, Ms Goncalves told the would-be robber: "I'm just going to talk with you about Jesus."


Yep, that would make me leave in a hurry too grin

I saw the video and thought that she handled him very well.

Unfortunately, two hours later he robbed a shoe store and is now in police custody.
