Bus robbery fail: Passengers pin armed robber to the ground

A passenger on a bus in Seattle stopped an armed robbery when he wrestled the assailant to the floor after the man pointed a gun in his face.

What started as a typical bus journey in Seattle turned out to be a heroic victory for passengers, after they pinned an armed robber to the floor.

These shocking pictures show the moment a hooded man began waving a gun and making threats.

That is until one man oblivious to his surroundings has a gun pointed in his face and suddenly wrestles the criminal to the ground.

Other passengers join in to restrain the robber, holding him down until the police turn up. While some scrabble away from the danger.

Local media reports that the 19 year-old man has been charged with first degree robbery.
