According to littlethings.com, surveillance footage showed the 34-year-old thief demanding cash from each of the four bank tellers before pointing his handgun (which turned out to be a fake plastic gun) at a father with his two young sons and threatening the boys.

What this robber didn’t know at the time was that the man shielding his children was well-trained Staff Sgt. Eddie Peoples, who happened to be home on leave because his father-in-law was ill.
“Don’t anyone do anything or the kid is going to get it.”
Sgt. Peoples snapped into “battle mode” when the robber threatened his boys, Ikaika and Kioni.
“I’ve been through five deployments,” he told FOX News in Tampa Bay. “I’ve fought the Muqtada militia, everybody you can think of, so weapons getting pointed at me, it doesn’t really bother me anymore.”
What the off-duty sergeant did next was “a piece of cake” compared to being in a Middle East war zone.
