The suspect demanded money from one of the employees. The employees stated the the suspect became verbally aggressive and told them to “F’n give it to me now”! One of the other employees realized that the suspect was trying to rob them and began to push the suspect out the back door. The suspect began to fight back. As they were fighting one employee got behind the suspect and pulled him outside and shut the door. The owner was in the parking lot and realized what was happening. He observed the suspect get into a maroon Ford van and drive away. The owner followed the suspect and got a license plate before he lost the suspect.
