Caught on cam: Armed robbery switcheroo


WARREN, Mich. (WDIV) – Surveillance video shows a Michigan hotel employee taking a handgun away from a would-be robber during a frightening encounter.

The incident happened early Thursday at the Victory Suites in Warren.

Police sources say an armed woman demanded money from the hotel clerk. The clerk began placing fistfuls of money on the counter, prompting the woman to put down her gun and grab the cash with both hands.

That’s when the clerk snatched the gun and a struggle ensued.
