An 85-year-old man tackled a would-be robber wielding a sawed-off shotgun and hammers.

The man was inside a bar when 3 robbers burst through the door.

One jumped the counter and threatened the manager.

Another pointed a shotgun at the man.

The manager tackled one man that threatened him with a hammer.

The 85-year-old grappled with another of the masked men and shoved him out from behind the counter.

"I owe Denis a huge debt of gratitude," said Bar One Racing manager Tim Murphy. "It was an incredible act of bravery from him."

Police are still looking for the men, but have not caught them yet.
