Have-a-go poet floors moped mugger with karate kicksJustin Davenport, Crime Editor
27 Feb 2012
A 60-year-old poet karate-kicked a mugger to the ground as he tried to flee with a woman's handbag.
Neil Gevisser, who learned the martial art in his native South Africa, went into action after a heavily built young thug robbed a mother as she waited in her car to collect her child from school.
The robber smashed a window in the 4x4 with a stone, snatched the bag and sprinted away to a moped which he had left running when Mr Gevisser, alerted by the 40-year-old woman's screams, intervened.
Mr Gevisser aimed a karate kick at the moped, sending it spinning around and throwing the robber to the ground.
When the mugger leapt up and advanced towards him, Mr Gevisser, who is 5ft 8ins tall, kicked him in the stomach with a "karate roundhouse" and then in the shins. The robber ran off empty-handed, limping.
