Gas station robbery stopped by well-placed cellphone
WINTER GARDEN, Fla. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - An attempt to rob a gas station was stopped by a very well-placed cellphone.
Police say a man walked into the gas station and asked one of the clerks for directions.
Just as he began talking, the man pulled out a gun and demanded that the clerk open the store's safe.
After two failed attempts to open it, the suspect fired one round toward the clerk.
But as photos indicate, the bullet was stopped by the cellphone in his pocket.
The suspect, however, is still on the run.
