Family: Eddie with his two sons who were at the bank with him when the robber struck. He said the most important thing was to get them out of the line of fire

8:39 PM on 3rd June 2011

Not even army heroes take a day off it
appears.

An Army staff sergeant who was home on leave
chased down and captured a bank robber who pointed a gun at his
children.

Eddie Peoples was at the Bank of America
branch in Sarasota, Florida, with his four and six-year-old sons when the man
walked in with a handgun.

He pointed it at customers and the tellers,
demanding that they fill his bag with cash and threatened to kill anyone who did
not get on the ground.

Video footage shows Mr Peoples in the
background telling his sons to go under the chairs for cover and moving large
seats in front of them to protect them.

It was at that moment the robber points his
gun at the six-year-old, telling the bank: ‘Don’t try anything or the kiddy gets
it.’

Robber: Matthew Rogers, 34, a homeless Sarasota man with a criminal history including arrests for burglary, auto theft and reckless driving

According to Mr Peoples, 34, the robber then
said to him: ‘You, the big black guy, don’t try anything.’

When the robber escaped with the cash, it was
then that Mr Peoples, a ten-year veteran with honed combat skills from his years
in Iraq and Kuwait, sprang into action.

He left his sons inside while he jumped in his
rented van and blocked the suspect’s dark-coloured Honda in a parking space. The
robber rammed the van several times with his car, trying to flee.

He then got out of his car and pointed the gun
at the veteran’s head.

Mr People described the moment to CBS saying:
‘I was expecting to hear shots ringing out, but when he put that gun to my face,
that’s when my army training kicked in.’

Mr Peoples used his left arm to grab and twist the robber’s arm
until the wrist locked, making it easy for him to strip the gun away before
using a martial arts move to body slam him to the ground.

He said: ‘I took him to war, I came after him hard and
aggressive, it became a battle of who was gonna go.’

He had the gun in one hand and the bag of
money in the other and holding the robber to the ground when the deputy showed
up.

The Sheriff’s Office identified the robber as
Matthew Rogers, 34, a homeless Sarasota man with a criminal history including
arrests for burglary, auto theft and reckless driving.

The gun turned out to be a realistic
toy.

Since news of his heroic actions have emerged,
Mr Peoples has become a hero and was awarded by the sheriff’s office for his
bravery.

Speaking to CBS about the encounter, he said:
‘This was a new variable for me as I’ve never been in a situation where my
children have been in danger.

‘My first instincts were to get my kids out of
the line of fire.

‘When I go away I always tell my kids, “daddy
is going to fight the bad guys”.

‘When I came back into the bank, my
six-year-old shouted to me “daddy, did you get that bad guy?”

‘And when I told him I did, he ran over to hug
me and everyone started clapping and cheering.
