The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun… but sometimes not even that is necessary for an unlucky robber.
After paying for a can of soda, 17-year-old Christian Dakota Thornton pulled his gun out and demanded that the cashier, Bhumika Patel, give him all the money in the register. Things took an interesting turn for the would-be robber when the cashier stopped Thornton in his tracks… with the very own cash register he was trying to steal from.
Thornton is the person shown in surveillance video pointing a gun at a cashier. The video then shows the cashier slapping his hands, hitting him over the head with the register drawer and chasing him out of the store with a hammer.
Thornton faces charges of criminal attempt armed robbery, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during a crime.
Well, that was quick!
