WATCH: Kiwi kebab shop owner ignores masked gunman

The owner of a kebab shop in the New Zealand city of Christchurch has become something of a legend, after CCTV footage of an attempted robbery went viral.

Despite the incident happening on May 28, Canterbury Police only released the vision this week, in hopes of finding the masked man.

In the video you can see the would-be robber walking up to the counter with a back pack and planning to threaten Said Ahmed, who is making an order.


But Mr Ahmed refuses to be rattled by the masked man.

He hands a kebab over to a customer and walks off, leaving the crook with nothing to do but leave.
