I thought this was a neat story from Trinidad & Tobago:

Rose walked in front, a short distance away and on reaching the back of the house was grabbed and thrown to the ground by a gun-toting man who demanded money. Standing nearby was another bandit with a cutlass.

A cutlass? Did he have a peg-leg and say, “Arr!”?

The Coast Guardsman walked into the yard soon afterwards and was greeted with a gun pointed at his face. The officer then drew his licensed firearm and fired three shots hitting the gunman in his head and face. The bandit dropped dead.

The other bandit dropped his cutlass and ran off, but he was quickly held by the fleet-footed Coast Guardsman.

Update: Fixed the link to point to the story’s archive
