PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia police say a quick-thinking employee stopped an armed robbery and locked the suspect inside the store until police arrived. It happened around 5:15 p.m. Tuesday at a Boost Mobile store on the 2700 block of North 5th Street.

The employee says a man pulled a gun and demanded money. The employee told him he had to go “outside” to get money.

“Can you wait a few minutes? I give you money. I have another employee outside and he took the key but after that I give you,” recounts the employee. “And he told me ‘OK.'”

He then shut the door and locked it from the outside, trapping the suspect until a SWAT team arrived.
