Virginia Beach, Va. – Virginia Beach Police are searching for a man who was allegedly attacked by several employees of a Jersey Mikes when they discovered he was attempting to rob the business.

Officers arrived at the Jersey Mikes located at 5701 Burton Station Road and found that the masked man had entered the store, approached one of the employees and assaulted him.

The employees felt that they were going to be robbed so they “attacked” the man.

“I hit him with the mop stick, broom stick, whatever. And we started wrestling around. And I am telling the other employee in the back with me, get him, you know, get him. And we started just beating him up, you know,” says store manager Mike Lambeth.

The beating forced the robber to retreat through the back door. But escape wasn’t that easy.

“He’s trying to get out the back. We beat him up some more out the back, he’s bleeding. Cars are honking at us. He’s stumbling in the street,” Lambeth says.

The would-be robber didn’t seem to have a gun. I’m wondering if he was quite “all there”. Thinking you could successfully rob a sandwich shop merely by putting on a mask and physically assaulting one of the employees?? Really? Dude, you’re outnumbered!

It turned out well, due to the somewhat benign nature of the robber’s M.O.

But if he’d brought a gun, the story would be different.

“He is described as a black male, late teens to early 20s and wearing a black hoodie and a dark colored bandana.”

Feral Amish on the loose!

I see a bunch of people getting arrested for assault and battery and getting sued for wrongful injury.

Thanks marktwain.
He is described as a black male, late teens to early 20s and wearing a black hoodie and a dark colored bandana.
IOW, this all happened because he could have been Obama's son.

Does Trayvon have a brother? It’s just too bad that this black thug wasn’t killed.

If you liked that, then you'll love this.

robbery gone wrong

That video warmed my heart.
You gotta love the guy with the number 10 shirt closing the door calmly and return to the beating.
...also, the old guy waiting his turn to get his kicks in.
