Texas Store Owners Fight Off Two Armed Robbers

Watch Two armed thugs try to rob a cellphone store but the owner and his son fight back

Surveillance video captures a terrifying moment in Arlington where two men walk into a store and point a gun at a store clerk and his son. Police released the footage Tuesday of the incident that occurred last month. The first attacker pulls what appears to be a small revolver from his bag and points it at the two men behind the counter. The owner's son steps in and wrestles the armed suspect. "He jumped over the counter and that's when we started pushing and grabbing him". The owner also helps in restraining the man.

One of the suspects, who was talking to the store owner, pulls out a handgun and jumps over the counter.

The two staff pushed the armed robber towards the door while his accomplice stood in the middle of the cell phone store retrieving his bag. "It's all fake. They're just making up anything.' But after, when police told me, 'It's a real gun and it's loaded, ' of course it's coming into my mind, we should not do that", he said.

The other suspect tried to get the staff members off of him as he inched towards the doorway and eventually broke free, leaving his torn shirt behind.

Authorities warn against fighting back in such cases, but Monga, who came to America from Pakistan 14 years ago, said he's worked too hard to simply hand it all over to a couple of criminals. "If something is going to happen, it's going to happen to both of us".
