Surveillance Shows Victim Fighting Off Shotgun-Wielding Robber

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Terrance freeman is ordering Chinese takeout when two men casually walk in. Surveillance footage captures what happens next. One of the men carries a sawed-off shot gun, and he points it at Freeman while the other guy mugs him, grabbing his wallet, cash, keys and even his belt.

"I didn't want that to be the way I die. The end. That's when I rushed the guy with the gun. We started to fight," remembers Terrance Freeman.

Philadelphia Police tell us that the fight inside Golden City Chinese Takeout on Ogontz Avenue in West Oak Lane lasted more than three minutes.

You can see Freeman jump one of the guys in the video.

"The second male with the dreads is saying shoot him, kill him," describes Lt. George McClay of the Philadelphia Police.

"I didn't want to get shot. I did get shot, but it wasn't major," Freeman says. "My main concern was getting the gun."

Freeman eventually grabs the gun and runs out to get help.

"I give this guy credit. He stands up to these guys and fights with these guys," says Lt. George McClay of Philly Police.

Detectives now need your help identifying these violent men who are about 18 to 20 years old. Lieutenant George McClay believes their bold clothing could help get them behind bars. One of them was wearing a black sweatshirt that says "Rise and Grind" on the front and on the back it says "Blood, Money, Entertainment." The other guy was wearing a New York hat with gold chains on it.

"We think these guys got the gun back and they're going to do the same thing to another poor soul," says Lt. George McClay.

For now, Freeman's hip is healing from the gunshot, but the horrific ordeal still haunts him.

"It's crazy. I don't feel the same. It's scary going out at night," says Freeman. "I'm glad I'm alive and can still walk."

Anyone with information on who these men could be are asked to call police.
