My Bloody Valentine: Good Samaritan Knocks-Out a would-be Armed Robber during an Attempted Pill Heist at a FL Walgreens ~ Hero happens to be both a Champion Boxer and the Boyfriend of the Girl who… Scroll down to read more!

Meet 25 year old David West.  That’s him below…

And here David is with his girlfriend, who works at a Bradenton, FL Walgreens.

On Valentine’s Day (2016) David showed up at the Walgreens (while his girlfriend was working) intending to ask her if he could bring her lunch.  Instead, David, a two time winner of the Florida State PAL Boxing Championships, wound up KO’ing a would-be armed robber who, at that very moment, happened to jump over the pharmacy counter and threaten the pharmacy staff with a gun.  The incident was captured on video (which you can watch by clicking here) which begins with 26 year old Anthony Robert Nemeth walking past the customer, his head covered in a gray hooded sweatshirt and his face concealed behind a white towel.

After passing David Nemeth jumped up on the far end of the pharmacy counter and gestures towards his right pocket (witnesses would tell cops that Nemeth demanded that the pharmacist turn over all of the Oxycodone and that he threatened them with a gun).

At this point, David, who’s girlfriend happens to work behind the pharmacy counter in the store, approaches Nemeth, who hopped down from the counter to confront him.

The two then get into a tussle, with Nemeth receiving blow after blow until he eventually falls to the floor unconscious. 

David left a bloody mess in his wake…

David posted a picture of his bloodied boxing hoodie on his Facebook page and would be quoted on the news as saying:  “He started fiddling with his hands and went to reach into his pants and that’s when I reacted.  I was protecting the one I love.  I have to say, she’ s really the reason why I reacted so quickly. It was just instinct to protect her.”

Meantime, Nemeth, who was carted out unconscious  and was then taken to Blake Medical Center for treatment was booked into the Manatee County Jail on an armed robbery charge.

In regard to his boxing skills David would say:  “If anyone has ever trained, you put your hooks in and I flattened him out on his stomach.  He eventually just ended up… I let him roll over, so I had him face-to-face, so I was holding his arms. I just wanted to stop him.”  Memo to David West:  Epic.  Absolutely epic!
