CHICAGO -- A brave employee jumped into action to help foil an armed robbery in Chicago’s Chatham neighborhood.
A 20-year-old man armed with a gun entered the Cottage Grove Grocery store in the 8400 block of South Cottage Grove around 4 p.m.
The suspect and the 37-year-old employee behind the counter got into a physical altercation. The suspect’s gun reportedly jammed.
Another employee jumped in to help subdue the gunman.
That 37-year-old clerk suffered a gash to his head which required a few stitches.
The gunman was arrested and charges will soon be filed.
