A heroic security guard managed to subdue a steak knife-wielding man by using his impressive nunchuck skills. Oklahoma City police received a call about a disturbance at an apartment complex on June 8, but they arrived at the scene only to discover an unnamed security guard pinning suspect Jerome Thompson to the ground, nunchucks in hand.
According to the guard, the man had been staying with residents at the complex and was having drug issues. The security guard had warned him not to hang around the apartments, but the man refused to heed his advice. Then, suddenly, the guard spotted Thompson charging at him with knives in his hands. Thompson allegedly shouted at the guard that he wasn’t leaving and that he was going to kill him, according to KOKH-TV.
So, the unidentified guard did what he felt necessary to protect his personal safety and the safety of those who lived in the apartment block — by whipping out his nunchucks and performing an attack move commonly reserved for martial arts classes.
With one swift motion, the guard struck Thompson with the Bruce Lee-style weapon, just as he was about to stab him. He was able to hold Thompson down while bystanders called the authorities.
Thompson faces charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and trespassing complaints, KOKH reported. He was booked into the Oklahoma County jail, where he remains on a $3,000 bond.
You never know when those crazy nunchuck moves will come in handy! That’s self-defense with style.
