Armed with martial arts training, but no weapon, the 36-year-old Melvin chased the man into Queen Square.
"I didn't know where the knife was, so I stayed behind him a safe distance until I could figure out what I was going to do in this situation," Melvin said.

He then saw the knife in the man's right hand.

"I wasn't sure if me chasing him was going to force him to turn around and confront me with a knife or not."

As the robber approached Queen Square with Melvin close on his heels, the robber began to slow down. Melvin then threw the exhausted man to the ground and disarmed him.
Good for him, but I do wonder if he couldn't have found time to grab a makeshift weapon as an equalizer if he was dead-set on chasing this guy down--he couldn't have counted on exhaustion to help him.
