Headline- Visiting Chinese professor fights off armed robber using martial arts in LA.

A Chinese professor visiting Los Angeles early this month fought off an attacker using martial arts in an incident that has gone viral across Chinese media.

Was excited to read this article after seeing the pictures. But a second look at the article is a bit suspect. I have worked a lot with crime/ security. Almost never does a criminal come back for seconds after having his but kicked (or threat of it). Especially a one man thug in daylight. Criminals target the weak and meek. Alleged victim was confident enough to fight, but gave up his luggage later..... hmmm... Source of the story, Chinese media...... seems maybe the Chinese didn't just steal western patents, but western media methods. And finally, those are pretty good pictures for a crime in progress.... maybe too good?

Nice, if it's true. I'd love to see a video and hope he made sure the attacker won't be picking anything up for at least a year. ;)

Chinese professor is probably a PLA spy and messed up. Should have let himself get robbed to more accurately play his professor role.

Taking a third look at the article- missed this:

""To help with the investigation and public safety education, Zhou re-enacted the incident and recorded it with the help of locals. The footage was later shared online and began trending on social media.""
