Machete wielding thugs get more than they bargained for
The Southern Cross Cruiser Club in Sydney, Australia was holding a meeting at a club when two men armed with machetes stormed in and approached staff at the bar.
The group of about 50 bikers in another room were alerted to the drama unfolding next door.
“I was in the middle of giving my meeting and someone ran in and said, ‘The place is being robbed’,” club president Jester told Aussie ABC radio. He said while one offender jumped over a balcony and ran into a nearby park, the other man tried to escape through a roller door at the front of the club.
“We ran around the roller door out the front and as this guy opened the roller door, we crash tackled him in the doorway,” Jester said.
He added: “He fell on my arm so I let him go and he got up, so we chased him to the fence. We caught him at the fence and crash-tackled him and hog-tied him to the ground and waited for the police to get there. He picked the wrong night I think.
“If they’d only looked, right when they walked in the main door, they would have seen 50 of us sitting there. Obviously they couldn’t see out of the balaclavas, because they didn’t even look. I don’t think he did his homework very well.”
