Daniel Gaskey, an off-duty Mansfield, Texas firefighter and ex-Marine, was at an Exxon gas station when Dylan Bearden pushed him aside and attempted to rob the register. Kansas City 5 reports that “the Midlothian Police Department released the surveillance video Tuesday, but the incident happened last month.”
In the video, Bearden, 19, shoved past Gaskey and approached the gas station attendant while holding a knife. Gaskey made quick work of Bearden and took him down. Bearden now faces aggravated robbery charges. Luckily no one was hurt in the incident.
