Employees attack, subdue would-be robber armed with box cutter

A man armed with a box cutter got more than he bargained for when he tried to rob a Tucson, Arizona, restaurant last week. 

Security shows the man, identified as 20-year-old Jerry Evans Madril, enter the Mi Nidito restaurant and demand money from employees. But the workers weren't having any of it. 

At least six workers attacked Madril. One of them even hit him with a chair. Eventually, the would-be robber is subdued until police arrived. One of the employees was cut by the box cutter in the scuffle and had to get 16 stitches. 

Madril suffered minor injuries and is facing multiple charges, including armed robbery and aggravated assault.

He's being held on $50,000 bail.
