Have you ever heard about the saying “If you love something, you have to protect it”?
It’s a natural instinct that in times of danger, we feel the need to protect our loved ones. Sometimes people risk their own safety just to save the people they love.
Perhaps, love really conquers everything. Every day you have to make choices that ensure the thing or person you love continues to bloom. So if you find someone that is good for you, do whatever it takes to keep her, just like the man who saved her girlfriend from a robbery.
A robber hoping to steal a prescription pain medication in one of Florida’s pharmacy store was stopped by a brave customer who happened to be a state boxing champion.

West told WLFA,
“When he started reaching into his pants like he had a weapon, that’s when I did something just to protect my girlfriend,
The whole time I was holding him, down it really, really hurt my heart,
I wasn’t trying to be malicious in anyway, it’s just how I reacted to the situation.
I did what I had to do to protect the person I love, I hope he [Nemeth] gets the help he needs and I hope it helps his loved ones, too.”
Regarding his boxing skills, West told Herald Tribune,
“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.”
Anthony Nemeth, 26, was charged with one count of attempted armed robbery. According to the station, even if the thief didn’t have a gun on him but pretended that he has one; “armed” action applies as defence of victims.
So I guess, this Valentine’s gift is so special and unforgettable for his girlfriend to cherish.
