An armed citizen cornered armed robbers and told them, “My gun is bigger than yours.”
According to Cleveland.com, police say two armed suspects, a 19-year-old Parma man and an 18-year-old Cleveland man, entered Suleyman’s Supermarket on Cleveland’s West Side just before 10 p.m. and demanded money.
The store owner gave the suspects around $300, and they turned to leave, only to see a police officer standing outside. Panicked, the two armed men ran through the store to exit in the back, but were stopped by a citizen with a gun.
The citizen, a friend of the market’s owner, “grabbed” one of the suspects and “slammed him into the wall.” The second suspect hid in a bathroom while the armed citizen stood outside the door saying, “My gun is bigger than yours.”
The police report indicates the suspect “surrendered and begged the man not to shoot him.” The armed citizen ordered both suspects to the ground and disarmed them.
The business owner “ordered the robbers to crawl out outside, where they were immediately arrested.”
