It’s a commuter’s worst nightmare. One minute you’re sitting on the bus, head down at your iPhone — let’s face it, you’re playing Candy Crush — and the next there’s this gun in your face and a dude is trying to take all your stuff.

This security footage shows an attempted robbery that occurred on a Seattle bus three days before Thanksgiving when the iPhone playing man decided to take down the armed robber rather than surrender his stuff. “First thing he did was grab the arm holding the revolver and managed to get his finger in (the trigger hole),” a witness told West Seattle blog. “We were sitting on (the armed man) trying to restrain him.”

Watch the passengers successfully wrestle the thief to the ground.
