Charleroi Police Area and King's Attorney note a "act of courage",
Saturday, 4 in the afternoon. An individual enters the gas station shop on the way from Brussels to Jumet. It comes a few moments after a firearm points a customer and asks for money, threatening him.
Two young people, Eliza and Nicholas, are not far away. They were watching the scene after noticing that the man appeared armed. And as he tosses his weapon to escape, Eliza jumps on it, makes a throat and puts it on the ground. Nicola takes care of disarming his pistol, which was concealed in the waist.
Bad luck for the robber: the young men are actually two police officers from the Charleroi Police Area Intervention Service. Not used, not in uniform, not armed. But trained and ready to intervene.
