A video shows three men allegedly attempting to rob a Texas air conditioner repairman at gunpoint while he was working on the roof of a gas station.
Donald Burns told KTRK he was on the roof of a gas station at the 500 block of Berry Road in Houston, Texas, attempting to repair a cooler at around 2:00 a.m. on February 7 when three men on the ground came up to the store and demanded the keys to his truck.
Burns said he had already been the victim of one robbery a year and a half earlier, per KTRK, so he was unwilling to allow the men to take his truck:
“I heard them holler, ‘Throw down the keys. Throw down the keys,'” Burns recalled. “Before I knew it, one was already on the back of the truck. Got two steps up the ladder and I grabbed my tool bag, and I said, ‘I’m going to smash your brains out and I’m going to cut you up with this knife. You better go.'”
