SEATTLE — Bus riders in Seattle took down an armed man who attempted to rob them last month. In newly released video, the suspect, identified as 19-year-old Trevonnte Brown, can be seen walking down the aisle and sticking a gun in another man’s face.  That man quickly reacts, shoving the gun away and wrestling with Brown. Soon after, others join the struggle and pin Brown to the floor as other passengers scurry away.

According to KOMO-TV, Brown is a recent high school graduate with no criminal history. He was arrested and is being held on $350,000 bond. He has been charged with three counts of robbery and one count of attempted robbery. He has pleaded not guilty.

If convicted, Brown could face more than 15 years in prison.

    The woman with the crutches is a total idiot! How dare she endanger others in order to retrieve her ‘stuff’. I don’t think I would have been so polite as to pass her items to her while others are risking their lives trying to wrestle a gunman. I assume the woman who helped her was trying to use her cell phone to call 911 when she was interrupted. Get the heck off the bus, lady! Use your head.
