Brave gambler risks it all to take down machete-wielding thief with single punch

A brave gambler floors a thief armed with a machete with a single punch in this dramatic casino footage.

Two men, armed with the blade and a metal pole, stormed a clubhouse in St. Albans, Melbourne, Australia.

Wildly swinging the menacing machete, one assailant struck a patron in the face, cutting his cheek.

Unfazed by the attack, the man strides towards the robber and stuns him with a right hook to the face, knocking him to the ground.


Despite a brief retaliation, the man’s heroics ensured the thieves left empty handed with no cash taken from the venue.

The incident happened in on November 12 last year but now a digital composite of the floored assailant has been released by Victoria Police to help with their investigation.

Officers believe the attempted robbery is connected to three similar incidents at gambling clubhouses in the area.

No one has been injured in any of the three robberies.

"It’s probably only luck up to this point that someone hasn’t been seriously injured," said Detective Inspector Dean Thomas.

"Someone in the community is likely to know who these people are and we are urging them to come forward."
