This shocking surveillance footage shows a young convenience store clerk desperately fight off a dangerous burglar.
The video shows the thug barge into the Dollar General Store where Wanika McKinney, 27, was working. The robber pointed a gun at her coworker, and forced Wanika to tie the cashier up before he forced her to hand over all the cash in the register.
Wanika feared that the burglar would kill her, until the clearly intoxicated robber dropped his “gun” and it shattered to pieces. Turns out, the gun was fake, giving Wanika the confidence she needed to make a bold move.
The footage shows Wanika jump the robber and struggle with him as she tries to escape. Despite his size, she manages to drag him outside, where a friend of hers saw them and called the police. Though the robber fled the scene, he was later arrested.
Thanks to Wanika’s bravery, this story had a happy ending.
