Another robbery has been thwarted by a law abiding gun owner. And thanks to a high-definition surveillance video in the store it shouldn’t be long before the suspects are caught.
It’s a shame we don’t have any audio to go with the video. It makes you wonder why in the world one of the robbers decided to answer his cell phone during the armed robbery and what was going through his head when he made a failed attempt to hop over the counter.
The robbery was not stopped by a call to 911. When the owner came out with a shotgun the armed robbers decided that this was not the right place for them to rob.
The two fled the store empty handed and we can notch another win for the good guys with guns.
According to the Fresno Bee,
Noe Guzman is the clerk who let the two young men into the store. Tuesday at the store, Guzman said one bandit started asking him questions about bracelets when the other pulled out the gun.
“He cocked the gun,” Guzman recalled. “I moved over so that my friend in the back could see.”
Police identified Guzman’s “friend” as his uncle, and said the man is the store owner and was in the back room with his daughter and newborn grandchild when the robbers came in. Neither police nor Guzman named the store owner.
Guzman said the robber with the gun looked nervous and more afraid he would hurt himself than shoot Guzman.
“I didn’t want him to shoot me, he was shaking,” Guzman said. “So I told him, ‘Calm down, everything’s OK.’ ”
That’s when the owner came out of the back room with his gun — a shotgun with a bullpup stock — and told the robbers to back up. Guzman said the gunman shifted his attention from Guzman to the owner, and the other robber dropped on the floor and crawled “like the soldiers” toward the back door.
The crawling robber told the second to shoot. Instead, both robbers ran.
