He walked into the bank covered in all black clothing and a ski mask. He then handed two notes to the tellers commanding them to put the money in the bag. Knetzger, a 54 year old grandfather, was in the back of the room eating a snack while the robbery was taking place. After finishing his snack Knetzger decided to do something about it and tackled the man.

When asked why he was so quick to make a move, Knetzger said he was simply worried for his wife’s safety. After tackling the young robber he also held him to the ground until police arrived. The best part is that it was all caught on the banks security cameras, effectively ensuring that they would always remember the hero of the day.
