Employees wrestled a would-be armed robber at a Dunkin' Donuts in Philadelphia's Olney section early Sunday morning.

According to police, a man armed with a gun entered the Dunkin' Donuts, which is inside of a Sunoco station, at Rising Sun and Adams Avenue shortly before 4 a.m.

The man allegedly pointed a handgun at the 19-year-old clerk and ordered him to the ground.

Police say he then pointed the gun at a 20-year-old employee. While the suspect focused on the second employee, police say the first employee wrestled the man to the ground and put him in a choke hold.

The second employee then helped to disarm the man.

Police say the two managed to hold the suspect inside of the store until police arrived.
