7-Eleven ‘Cowboy’ Clerk Ropes Alleged Armed Robber

A 7-Eleven clerk in the Dallas area roped an alleged armed robbery suspect and tied him up to keep him under control until police arrived.

KIII-TV reports that the robbery suspect was allegedly armed with a screwdriver. The clerk, who describes himself as a cowboy from West Texas, fought with the suspect before finally roping him.

WFAA reports that the incident happened shortly after 11 p.m. When police arrived on scene the suspect was tied so tightly that officers had to use a knife to cut him loose.

The cowboy clerk suffered “minor injuries” from the altercation with the suspect.
