“The man wanted to frighten me and I decided he couldn’t do that.”

A takeaway shop owner has spoken about how he “took away the power” of an armed would-be robber by simply ignoring him. Ahmed said he had witnessed years of violence in Egypt before emigrating to New Zealand, and the quiet predictability of his life in Christchurch influenced his low-key reaction. “My heart was beating quickly, I was scared, but I wasn’t going to show him that. That is why my nature is cool. I have been 20 years here and never seen any fighting. In Egypt it happens every day but in New Zealand I am calm because it is a safe country.”
