This is the story of one robber with a shotgun and three determined thrift store employees, one of which entertained her inner Rambo to give this man a beat down he so richly deserved, and she would use his own gun to do it.
From the NY POST:
Three thrift store employees overpowered a robber who was wielding a shotgun in Long Island — including a woman who grabbed the weapon and beat the robber about the head with it, cops and witnesses said Sunday.
Ronald J. Kelly walked into Island Thrift store carrying the firearm around 8:25 p.m. Saturday, and demanded the store manager empty the til, according to the Suffolk County Police Department.
The woman grabbed the gun, and with the help of two other employees managed to wrestle him to the ground.
“She grabbed the gun and started struggling with the guy,” store manager Rich Rodriguez told The Post. “The two male employees saw what was going on and started punching the guy in the face. She grabbed the shotgun and started hitting him in the face with the butt of the gun.”
….. None of the workers were injured, but the accused robber suffered scratches and bruises that made for a nasty mugshot. He was transported to Stony Brook Hospital for treatment, cops said.
