KTSU reports, an encounter between two Latter Day Saints missionaries and an armed robber was caught on a surveillance camera in Brazil.




The LDS church confirmed to KTSU that the missionaries were working out of the Manaus, Brazil mission.

The video shows two men riding up on a motorcycle.

A man, who appears to have a gun, gets off the motorcycle and approaches the two Mormon missionaries.

The man points the gun at the missionaries, but one missionary disarms him and throws the gun over a nearby fence and a fistfight ensues.

The fight lasts nearly a minute, going up the sidewalk and into the street. The missionary lands several punches, throwing his attacker to the ground. A bystander jumps in, eventually succeeding in pulling the two men apart.
