Around 9 p.m. on Monday night, Javier Castro Castillo robbed the Panaderia Bakery and Superette in North Charleston at gunpoint, firing warning shots.

But his getaway wouldn't be so simple as a coworker jumped Castillo outside the store and held him to the ground until police arrived.

The Post and Courier has a nice write-up about the thwarted robbery, and Live 5 News has a nice video.
