A gaming cafe in Kaneohe, Hawaii was robbed last week, three youths storming in and demanding money from the customers inside. They got the money, but I don't think they were ready for one guy to fight back.
As you can see in this clip from KHON2 news, things were going pretty well for the bandits early on. They come in, threaten the front desk employee, rough him up then start taking money from the kids inside using the computers. Then they try and take one guy's DS. Nunh unh.

He goes bananas, flying straight at his would-be thief with a flurry of punches. He even manages to land one. He receives several more (with interest) in return, but his actions help inspire the rest of the cafe's inhabitants, who eventually fight back, stealing the mask of one robber and causing the rest to flee.

Three of the thieves were apprehended by police around a block away.

Remember kids, if a robber tries to steal your DS you fight back.

The best part?  The thieves were previous customers, they had info on all of them already.

I would go apeshit if someone tried to take my DS, too. It's my damn DS, you can't have it man.

No way.

Fuck yeah, score one moral victory for nerd rage!  Now the pertinent question, what was he playing?  I'm betting Harvest Moon or something.

Why does it say "three youths storming in" and then "three of the thieves were apprehended"?  Did a fourth materialize at some point?

According to the video, there were two guys waiting outside, so five guys in the operation total.

And wow, is that kid ever lucky they didn't actually have a weapon.

Those thieves are lucky the kid wasn't holding his stylus when they took the DS, actually. Pen in the eye.

Two guys at ComicCon got in a nerd fight, and one of them got a pen in the eye when the other swung his swag-bag at him.

That's probably how it went but really; he should be more thankful neither of them had any weapon. In reality, no game is really worth dying for.

That chubby gamer guy is pretty badass. He was pushing two guys backwards AS they were pummeling him!

Awesome, he should get some sort of reward or something.

Also the dude at the front counter, he took a few punches to the jaw and still managed to stand his ground.

Too bad the pen is mightier than the sword, and not mightier than the swag.
