NEW ORLEANS, LA (WWL) -

Police hope some amazing surveillance video will help get a shotgun-wielding bandit off the streets.

The New Orleans Police Department said the robber walked up to the victim, pointed a shotgun at his face and demanded money. That's when the victim wrestled the shotgun away from the suspect and started chasing the would-be thief.

It happened Saturday night on Burgundy Street near the French Quarter.

The victim told police that shortly after the incident, two men drove up asking him to return the gun in exchange for a cell phone he supposedly dropped.
