& # 39; I said "this doesn't seem the right way." He said, "No, there's a man on the train that robs people now." That drove me crazy, & LaPierre said WGN.

& # 39; He very quietly robbed people, & # 39; LaPierre said to the Chicago Sun Times referring to a suspect on the train.

Furious with what he had just heard, LaPierre stepped back on the train and decided to confront the armed man, later identified as 30-year-old Tremaine Anderson, face-to-face.

& # 39; I went forward and said to him, give me the gun and we started fighting for the gun. & # 39;

& # 39; When I was a few yards away from him, I knew he wouldn't be able to respond quickly enough to shoot at me. & # 39;

& # 39; I went crazy, & # 39; he said. & # 39; When I see someone pulling a gun, I get angry, it really makes me angry. & # 39;

Video captured the moment LaPierre interfered with the robber and held him against his will by the train doors.

LaPierre managed to pull the gun out of the alleged thief's hand while the suspect yelled at him to let go.

& # 39; I won't let you go! I will not let you go! I will not let you go! & # 39; roared LaPierre.

Without the knowledge of Anderson, LaPierre was an amateur boxer of Golden Gloves who knew a few movements.

& # 39; I am a boxer. I will break your head in one fell swoop, & was heard LaPierre say in the video.

& # 39; I kept telling him that if you move I will knock you out, & # 39; he remembered.

& # 39; I could hit you seven times in three seconds, & # 39; LaPierre boasted, keeping the man still.

At one point, he handed the gun to another commuter and asked her to set up safety. The bewildered rider stated that she had no idea how to do such a thing.

The suspect, meanwhile, was still determined to try and get away and told LaPierre that he had friends on the train who then tried to intimidate him to let him go – but he managed to hold him until the police arrived.

& # 39; They started threatening me, but I just stood in his face. The man kept saying to me, "It's just a gun, let me go, let me go." I kept saying to him, "You're not going anywhere," LaPierre said.

Anderson is accused of a felony count of theft with a firearm.

After the drama was over, LaPierre from Boston started his 12th marathon in Chicago.

Despite the incident on the train, he says he still loves the Windy City.

& # 39; It is one of the best cities I have ever visited. Incidents happen everywhere. It is what it is, you know?! & # 39; Said LaPierre.
