Security guard shot foiling club robbery
Sydney Morning Herald - 24.09.07
Police said the guard was injured trading shots with at least three armed men wearing balaclavas, who smashed their way through the rear door of the club about 11.40pm (AEST).
He was rushed to nearby St George Hospital with "serious wounds to the torso and limbs", an NSW Ambulance spokeswoman said.
The robbers fled the scene empty-handed.

Considering the SO was primarily hit in the upper torso & stomach, I wonder if his company will now consider shelling out for some body armour? FWIW I reckon he did a good job... pity he didn't dispatch any of those 3 balaclava-clad oxygen thieves

I agree. If you can enter the back door of any establishment that has a reasonable cause for safety and security, it should be a metal solid core door. We had a burglar here in town that hit the same mom and pop store 5 times before they changed the back door. I always wondered why it took 5 times for them to act.

I was under the impression that Australia didn't have armed security. Hmm, learn something new everyday."Alright guys listen up, ya'll have probably heard this before, Jackson vs. Securiplex corporation; I am a private security officer, I have no State or governmental authority. I stand as an ordinary citizen. I have no right to; detain, interrogate or otherwise interfere with your personal property-... basically all that means is I'm a cop."-Officer Ernie
