Surveillance video from the store has surfaced on the Internet, showing a pair of young men in hoodies walk into the store with crowbars and start to threaten staff and customers.
However, someone behind the counter clocks one of the thieves with a baseball bat and while his buddy tries to drag him out of the store, a customer wielding a stool at the door prevents him from leaving.
Somebody else then takes a swing with the bat, though one of the thieves manages to get away.
The remaining, disoriented thief is then subdued by a passing group of firefighters who pin him to the ground until police could arrive.
Police made an arrest and charges were laid.
