The clerk tells CBS Denver that the man, who also robbed a record store and a gas station during his Sunday night spree — and who had allegedly stolen merchandise from the store before, had been perusing the store’s PlayStation 3 games when he approached the register and demanded cash.
“I told him ‘no’ because I didn’t think it was right for him to try to steal from us,” says the clerk, who wasn’t going to let the $10 in his register go without a fight. “He proceeded to ask, I told him I thought it was messed up he was trying to rob a small business.”
The robber took off with the clerk in pursuit. The robber got away but was later apprehended after his vehicle crashed into a car and then flipped onto its side on a nearby lawn.
