This is what happens when an unarmed Marine Corps veteran meets an armed thug attempting to rob a gas station:

Our hero in the video then held the suspect until cops got there. From the Yuma County Sheriff:

Upon arrival, Deputies learned of three suspects entering the Chevron, one of them armed with a handgun. The armed suspect walked next to a store customer while pointing the weapon toward the cashier when the customer acted immediately and disarmed him. The other two suspects fled the area when they witnessed their fellow criminal stopped. The customer was able to detain the suspect he disarmed until law enforcement arrived.
The suspect detained during the incident was a juvenile and was booked into the Yuma County Juvenile Justice Center for one count of armed robbery and one count of aggravated assault.
And this is a great quote:
When Deputies contacted the customer, who previously served in the United States Marine Corps, and asked how he was able to take control of the situation, he stated, “The Marine Corps taught me not to [mess] around.”

The other two suspects from the video are still currently outstanding:

And, thankfully, nobody was hurt:
