Was This Guy SAS?

Untitled document

A 70 year old retired British man living in Germany, who was a veteran of unspecified military background, foiled the plans of four would be muggers. When they younger men, thought to be between the ages of 18 and 25 tried to steal his money, he did not meekly hand over his wallet.

He kicked the crap out of all four of them.

"Looks like he had everything under control," a police spokesman from the German town of Bielefeld said of the incident last Friday.

The man, a native of Birmingham who now lives in Germany, was challenged by three men, demanding money, while a fourth crept up behind him. Recalling his training, the Briton grabbed the first assailant and threw him over his shoulder.

When a second man tried to kick him, the pensioner grabbed his foot and tipped him to the ground. At this point, the three men, thought to be aged between 18 and 25, fled, carrying their injured accomplice with them.

What's sad about this is that if this had occurred in Britain, it is not at all unlikely that the man would have been arrested for defending himself.
