A would be robber doused a storeowner and his nephew with gasoline and threatened to set them and the store on fire if they didn’t give him the money in the register. They didn’t do what the robber ordered instead they wrestled him to the ground and held him until police arrived.
The store’s owner, 39-year-old Haytham Elzeibaq; his 21-year-old nephew Jay Elzeibaq, and a 46-year-old security man were working at the time.
“He just started throwing gas all over my nephew and I,’’ said Haytham Elzeibaq. “He said, ‘Give me the money, give me the cash’ and he took the register. He had a lighter and he was going to strike it.’’’
Hughes allegedly said: “Open the cash register or I’ll burn you and the store,’’ the police report said.
These guys didn’t use a gun or any sophisticated martial arts moves to take this guy down, just some old fashion wrestling and a few punches thrown in for good measure. It was very simple and extremely effective.
