A gun-toting Atlanta thug picked on the wrong old man last month.
And now police are asking for help finding the attacker after his carjacking effort was thwarted by the brave 82-year-old would-be victim, according to reports out of Atlanta.
A March 11 surveillance video, released yesterday, shows the suspect, a lanky male described by police as a teenager, waiting at a gas station when he approaches the elderly man while he was standing at the pump.
After an apparent exchange of words, the suspect pulled out a gun and demanded the vehicle, according to police.
Instead of yielding, the older man pounced aggressively, the video shows. He chased the teen several feet across the gas station lot before tackling him like a linebacker taking down a ball carrier.
