Attempted Armed Robbery in Boston Foiled by Employee
A liquor store clerk fights back against a would-be robber with the help of one of the store's items. The store's security camera captured the attempted heist in progress.
Police say just after eight thursday evening, the would-be robber entered the store, motioned that he had a gun and demanded cash from the clerk.
While the cashier stuffed a bag with money, another co-worker snuck up and took a few hefty swings at the robber with a full bottle of vodka. Seconds later, both employees were in on the fight while the robber tried to flee.
The robber was able to get away, but not for long. The 39-year-old suspect was later arrested in a nearby neighborhood and has been charged with armed robbery.
