Officials in Cleveland say a store owner fought back against two armed teen robbers Wednesday, holding them down until police showed up.
The incident happened at Suleyman's Market at West 32nd Street and Marvin Avenue around 10 p.m.
Police said officers were on patrol when someone told them the grocery store was being robbed.
The suspects--ages 18 and 19 years old--were on their way out but went back in when they saw police.
Inside, the store owner and clerk used a gun of their own to disarm one of the teens.
"Our officers did a fabulous job," said Cleveland second district Commander Tom Stacho. "[They] responded to the scene, secured it. The store owner and employee did a great job as well. I think they caught these two would-be robbers off guard and were able to disarm them and thankfully no one was injured."
No shots were fired.
SWAT officers were called as a precaution.
The store owners son told newsnet5.com he's thankful his father is alive.
