7-Eleven early- Store Clerk Wrestles Shotgun Away From an Armed Robber US service station worker wrestles gun off would be robber au CCTV has captured the moment a US service station worker fended off a would-be robber by wrestling away his shotgun A service station worker has fought off a would-be robber in Maryland, with CCTV capturing the moment he wrenched a shotgun off his attacker. The armed man stormed the Frederick 7-Eleven early last Tuesday, but retreated empty-handed after the worker wrestled his weapon away, the Frederick News-Post reported. Video shows the worker serving two customers as the would-be robber approaches. He can then be seen snatching the shotgun and eventually tearing it away from the attacker, who then turns and flees. “[The man] pointed it at my employee and started screaming at my employee, screaming in his facem and [my employee] grabbed [the gun] and took it out of the guy’s hands,” store owner Abdul Ayub told the Frederick News-Post. Police investigating the robber later found that the shotgun was not loaded at the time. An 18-year-old man was taken into custody the following day and has since been charged with attempted armed robbery. A shotgun-wielding man who ran into a 7-Eleven early Tuesday left empty-handed after a store clerk literally took the situation into his own hands, authorities said. The clerk was behind the register ringing up two customers at about 4 a.m. A man burst into the store at 7729 Sundays Lane, near Frederick, sidestepped the customers and leveled the shotgun at the clerk’s face, store surveillance footage shows. As the customers stepped back, the armed man leaned closer to the clerk. The man wore a bandanna over part of his face and a dark hood over his head. The footage clearly shows him addressing the clerk and gesturing aggressively with the firearm toward the register.
