VIDEO: Armed Woman Stops Vicious Attack On Restaurant Employee

The brutal attack was ended when the armed woman drew her weapon.

Milwaukee, WI – An unsuspecting woman was working behind a restaurant counter when a man walked up and delivered a brutal blow to her face, surveillance footage showed (video below).

The attack ended when the woman’s co-worker, who had a concealed carry permit, pulled out her weapon and pointed it at the assailant, WTMJ reported.

The incident occurred just after 1 a.m. on June 29 inside the kitchen of a George Webb Restaurant.

Surveillance footage showed the female employee, who was wearing a red shirt, as she moved items on the restaurant’s griddle.

The woman’s coworker, dressed in black, was standing to her right side when a man stormed towards her from her left, the video showed.

The woman took a slight step backwards just as the male landed a swift right-handed blow to her face.

In the video, the coworker was seen backing away from the altercation as she drew a weapon out of her right pocket.

The man initially pursued the victim as the coworker pushed the injured woman through a doorway behind her, but he appeared to hesitate when he realized the coworker’s gun was pointed at him.

The man made some angry gestures, then walked away from the armed woman as she advanced on him slightly to encourage him to leave the area.

The woman, a mother of three, sustained a concussion during the attack, WTMJ reported.

Investigators are still searching for the man who assaulted her, but said they have identified him.

“It is sickening to see this unsuspecting worker assaulted so brutally by this individual,” Milwaukee Alderman Bob Donovan said a news release, according to WTMJ. “It was an unprovoked attack and I am asking anyone with information to please contact MPD immediately…so we can get him off the street and behind bars where he belongs."

Donovan said that the woman’s quick-thinking coworker likely stopped the assault from turning even worse.

“One can only imagine what might have occurred if that employee had not pulled out her weapon,” he said.

The woman who was assaulted said that her employer allows workers to conceal and carry their weapons while on shift if they have licenses to do so.

Good for her! She kept her wits, kept the attack from escalating, and forced the assailant to leave. It's also refreshing to see a place where the employer allows CCW holders to have their weapons on them at work. So many employers don't.

I would have enjoyed this story better if the woman with the gun had shot the a-hole in the head. There is no redeeming value to a man who beats a woman.

@LEO0301 - The problem is that civilians aren't trained like police and military - to shoot at another human being is harder for a law-abiding citizen, especially a woman, unless you're a Texas mom.

But I agree there's no redeeming value to a man who beats a woman.

I'm sure everyone noticed this is a black man attacking an apparently white woman... So if the woman had shot him you would have BLM causing a stink... and this woman would be labeled a racist for protecting her co-worker... she may have even lost her job... so better she didn't shoot him...

@ProGODProUSA - I have to disagree with you on the harder for women part. If a woman goes through the CCW classes and gets her license she is no different then a man doing it with 1 exception. Also I have seen on the range where women have wiped the floor with men as mops. The exception I just mentions is this..wait for it...wait for it......You seem to forget women are mothers and what happens to the Putz who gets in the way of a mama bear? You get a dead Putz! Never underestimate the resolve and power of a woman in any situation. Ever!

blueriverrose - While you made some valid points keep this in mind, if that savage had made further attempts to get closer to her I would hope she would have pulled that trigger. You should never, ever draw your gun unless you feel your life or those around you are in danger of being lost. To pull your gun should be a last resort and only if you will follow through on it. Worse case would have been he got pissed she drew and didn't use it so he lunges for it. If she was mentally ready for that move then drawing that gun was smart but if it was pulled as a bluff then you play Russian roulette with your life and those around you.

@For_The_USA - I did keep mothers in mind, especially since we just had a Texas mother fire off a clip into the carjacker just the other day. Real parents would do just about anything to save their children, just as real heroes rush into danger when everyone else is fleeing. You'll never know just by looking at someone if he or she is hero material or not.

I believe she fired one round. Also, please don't confuse "clip" with a "magazine". Two totally different things.

@BruthaV - I apologize for my errors. I was going off my memory (which can be questionable, the older I get) and didn't go back to look at the story. And yes, I know better, it's a magazine, not a clip! Where's my dunce cap? I'll go sit in the corner with my copy of "America's 1st Freedom" magazine and clip out all the articles about clips and magazines ...

No, it is not harder for a citizen to kill another person than it is for a Officer to do so. Any person who has to make a choice between life or death will 99.9% of the time take life. Even it if means death for another. Training teaches you how to do it not if you can or will do it. That is only a decision you can make. There are Officers who have willingly died rushing to aid or save others, just as there are citizens who have done the same thing. It helps if you have the training to make that decision, which is why most people I know want the training to help them be able to do what they need to do when confronted.

Chiefd. I think she just did. But with so many criminals getting let go and the law abiding citizens trying to protect themselves it makes it hard to know what to do so you do not get sued.

If your going to point your weapon be damn prepared to use it or it winds up in the hands of the thug. I’m not saying shoot to kill but if that happens, too damn bad!

Her only mistake...never ever threaten with a gun. Especially a woman pulling a gun on a violent male, as they'll wrestle it away from you, and kill you with it. Or...they'll have a gun themselves and shoot you while your threatening. If a situation is serious enough to be threatening with one, instead you aim and fire at least twice.

So awesome to hear that the woman didn't get fired for having a weapon on her at work!Kudos to her employer for being progressive enough to allow ccw!

@BruthaV - no offense taken! If I'm wrong, I don't mind being corrected. Life"s too short to have a chip on the shoulder, you know?

She could have righteously shot him.
