WATCH: Two Australian men foil robbery, give memorable interview


Two men from Australia have found themselves unlikely heroes after stopping a robbery at a burger joint on the Gold Coast in the early hours of Saturday morning.

James Ross-Munro and Kane Wiblen appeared on Channel 9 on Tuesday, earning many laughs from the hosts over the tale of their night out.

The pair had been at a “stubbies (short shorts) and singlet” night at a local tavern and were walking to a petrol station to buy some noodles when Ross-Munroe broke his “plugger,” (flip flop) jumping over a sign.

Ross-Munro said he then saw a white car pull up with two men who had their faces covered and looked “suspicious”.

He took the keys from the men’s stationary car while they were in the Oporto store and chased the culprits down the street.

The hosts could barely contain themselves during the live interview, especially when Ross-Munro said the only gym he goes to is “Jim Beam”.

The good news is, he told Channel 9, that his beloved broken “plugger” is being replaced by a local fishing team.
