SQUIRREL HILL, Pa. —
Authorities are looking for a man accused of trying to rob a kung fu studio Wednesday night in Squirrel Hill. According to instructor Joshua Wang, a night class finished about 8:30 p.m. at the Win-Win Kung Fu Studio on Murray Avenue when an armed man walked in and yelled at Wang and two students to get down. "He said, 'Get down, get down, don't move,'" Wang said. Wang told Channel 11's Vince Sims that the man walked toward the back room and then ran toward them with the gun. "I didn't want this guy leaving, so I grabbed his head and twisted it," Wang said. "I twisted him here and I twisted him once more here." Wang said he tackled the gunman, and while he held him down, one of the students tried to get his gun. "My student was very good. He was very brave," Wang said. According to Wang, the robber was "very strong" and escaped. Wang told Sims that he's glad no one was injured. "That was my first time seeing something like that. In China, I never saw that," Wang said. The incident remains under investigation. Anyone with information on the attempted robbery is asked to contact police.
