“This guy needs to be on Home & Away. Best dramatic acting I’ve seen for years, love it."

Whenever news networks cover local crime stories, witnesses can be some of the best content.

Sound bites from interviews have gone viral over the years, including 'Ain't Nobody Got Time For That' and 'Hide Your Kids, Hide Your Wife' and it's not hard to understand why.

Well, it looks like we've got an Aussie version of that.

While Nick Ziglings didn't say anything during his interview with Channel 9 that's catchy, his energetic retelling of how he foiled an armed robbery at his local servo is bloody brilliant.

The Melbourne man was called in to recount how he managed to stop a woman armed with a gun, which turned out to be fake, from stealing cash from a 7/11.

He showed how he told everyone to get down before he rushed up to the woman, threw her against the front counter and managed to wrestle the gun off her and toss it away.

"Then I used my MMA, round the head..." Nick told Channel 9 before he showed off his impressive crash tackle.

Since the video of the news report was released, people have been absolutely loving Nick and his energy.

A video on YouTube called it the 'most Australian interview ever, while another added: "This guy needs to be on Home & Away. Best dramatic acting I've seen for years, love it. Well done, mate."

A third said: "You can see how much energy the seven eleven coffee can provide. Good job Samaritan"

Victoria Police have released a statement saying they're continuing their investigations into the incident.

"The incident took place at a convenience store on Victoria Avenue when a woman entered the store wearing a motorcycle helmet and allegedly carrying a black imitation handgun just after 3.30pm," the statement read.

"The woman threatened the attendant and demanded he hand over money from the till.

"A 57-year-old Albert Park man, who was in the store at the time of the incident, tackled the woman, knocking the firearm from her hand and restraining her until police arrived.

"Detectives from the Port Phillip Crime Investigation Unit have charged a 35-year-old Mildura woman with attempted armed robbery, aggravated burglary and associated firearm offences.

"She was remanded in custody to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Sunday 14 July."

What a bloody legend! Hopefully we get to see the CCTV footage of the attack just to see how good his actions were.
