Anthony Miranda Charged with Armed Robbery

Unfortunately for robbery suspect Anthony Miranda, his intended victim didn’t wear a sign saying he was a martial artist and as a result the tables were turned when the victim defended himself.

CBS Chicago reports that around 11:30 p.m. Friday, Anthony Miranda walked up to a car and asked the driver for a lighter. The driver said he didn’t have one, and Miranda allegedly pulled a handgun and demanded money.

Police say even after the driver gave up his money, Miranda told him to get out of the car. While Miranda’s attention strayed for a moment, the victim grabbed control of the gun, causing Miranda to shoot himself in the ankle.

Officers say the victim told them he is a martial arts expert and ultimate fighter. He was able to pin Miranda down until law enforcement arrived; finding the robber with cuts and bruises on his face. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

According to police, Miranda is a convicted felon. He is charged with armed robbery and aggravated discharge of a firearm. As of Sunday, he was being held on $350,000 bond, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s office. The victim does not face any charges.
