Dramatic surveillance footage showed a gutsy teenage ice cream shop employee fighting an armed robber. Although the thief made off with most of the cash, the girl’s actions led to his eventual capture and arrest, according to local Fox affiliate KCPQ Channel 13.
Rachael Bishop, 19, had worked at the Lynnwood, Wash., Baskins-Robbins for nearly a year and loved it. But things got decidedly scarier on Wednesday, when a robber walked into the store.
“He unzips his jacket and shows me he has a gun,” Bishop told Q13Fox. “He said, ‘I need all your money right now!’ And I said, ‘Sir, please don’t do this.’”
The man didn’t listen.
“He reached for the money twice, and then I swatted his hand, and then he reached for it again, and I started punching him, and then he punched me back, and that’s when he took most of the money and ran out,” Bishop told the station.
But the teen wasn’t deterred. She ran after the thief, calling out to others for help. Her actions led to his capture, local police told Q13Fox.
“The reality is that people kind of react as they react,” said Lynnwood Police Commander Jim Nelson. “In this case, she fought back and didn’t want to be a victim of this crime.”
Despite Bishop’s heroics, her boss told her that if a similar situation arises in the future, let the robber take the money and “save the life.”
